    Call me naive, but is there any reason why the UC cannot continue to charge a fee to cover their liabilities, i.e. apprenticeship levy, leave accrual (most of which comes back to the employee anyway) and administration?

    I know 100% of HMRC payment must go to the employee as pay, but any fee could be after this and may just be a modification of the terms in which we pay the UC fee already.

    I for one, would rather get something than nothing, even at NMW rates (though preferably my normal rate ).

    Whats in it for the UC? - goodwill and continuity...

      UCs charge a fee anyway to cover their admin, trouble is..its pretty low..sometimes £10 a week, guess they could raise it although whether they could do it mid-contract I dont know...I assume there is a mechanism for it to rise the same as most bills.

        According to your original post, the contract says "you may be entitled to commission" (my bolding), which perhaps gives the agency the wiggle room.

        Bear in mind, no company has to furlough staff, so I don't think there is anything you can do.

          andydd68 - NMW x 80% is approx. £245 take home per week, and is available until the end of June (not sure if this can still be backdated to 1st March or if this is already lost...). I think scope to cover any admin etc. and still come out well ahead of other benefits and without the hassle.

          Any contract detail can be amended subject to employment law and mutual agreement, so I believe there is no reason why the amount could not reflect actual UC liabilities.
