    How - if you are working via an umbrella company our umbrella company is your employer.
    No idea but I am sure someone will try.

      Pay parity is the obvious claim to make but that requires not being opted out of agency regulations - and a lot of umbrellas will force you to be opted out as part of their T&Cs.

      Usually because their access to the agency's PSC require that clause alongside the 60% or £x0,000 kick backs.
      merely at clientco for the entertainment

        Why would you need to be not opted out? AWR can't be opted out of and applies to anyone with worker status (which includes umbrella workers opted in or out of CR)

          Couldn't be bothered reading the rest of the thread but you're inside for tax purposes only and if you're via a brolly, you're an employee of them, not the client.
          If you want better conditions, ask for a better day rate to compensate for the tax and expenses shafting you're having to take. You're still a contractor at the end of it all, not a true employee of anyone else.
