    They'll just have to put up with the rumours then, won't they?

    To all Parasol contractors - start looking for a new Umbrella, folks...

    I can imagine the issue was similar when Covid first struck. Great when it's all good, but no interest in investing in the business and very poor when things inevitably go wrong.
    Exactly this!

    Well, in the case of the Giant debacle, the FCSA are the ones who outed the firm as suffering a ransomware attack when Giant were publicly denying it.

    Its a smokescreen - everyone I know who has tried (and multiple people on linked in and twitter) have tried to call / DM - and we just get told sorry we can't actually access your records so we can't do anything while the system is down. Its been at least 5 days down now so I think the FCSA need to be taking a more firmer view on this, as it certainly is not prompt action.
