All timesheets up to 18 Feb will be paid by Parasol, and anything after that with a different umbrella (which i won't name). Meetings are being scheduled with each contractor and the new umbrella over the next week to sort out the on-boarding etc.
    I wouldn't be surprised if there is more to come of this from other agencies.
    This will be a massive ball ache of paperwork for all involved.

    I feel sorry for you. Am with Hays and been paid fully since I do my timesheets on Hays portal only. They then invoice Parasol with full Invoice tracking..
    Yes, I have a few colleagues who are with Hayes / Parasol and they've been paid fully etc but they put their timesheets in weekly. Mine are monthly with a smaller outfit. Hopefully Parasol keeps the relationship with the larger agents, allowing us smaller fry to get paid and move on. Problem is, in an unregulated industry, it's out of the frying pan, into the fire.

    I suspect that it’s - once an agency says the contract has finished there is nothing left to enforce so by picking a date in the future there is nothing for parasol to argue over ( it’s a nit strange that every contract ends on Feb 18th but hard to proof it isn’t true).

    Thought that would be the case - what agency and new umbrella are you with (happy to here via pm) as I suspect they are swallowing a lot of lost commission / rebate unless the new umbrella is paying similar?

    • We're sorry but we're unable to accept your resignation because our records show that you still have a live assignment.

      If you would like to leave Parasol, please ask your agency or client to amend the end date of your assignment on their paperwork and send it through to us. Then check back here to complete your resignation and we'll send you your P45.


    So be aware of this..

    Pretty sure most of their workers will have either left by now or be moving in the next week or so. This is only the beginning of their problems, can't see them surviving if anything like the estimated 3/4 of their clients have already gone.

    It is back up now.
    No emails , no announcements , nothing. What were they thinking? Bizarre
