Dear University of Plymouth,
In April 2017 Government introduced new rules into the public sector called the off-payroll reforms, commonly referred to as “IR35”.
We understand you planned for this and developed a set of internal guidelines to be used when on boarding flexible workers, or contractors.
Please can you:
1. send us a copy of your internal guidelines used for this,
2. send us any policies you use surrounding this.
3. send us any documents you use to explain your policies to agencies who supply workers.
4. Send us your internal guidance explaining how you assess the status for each contractor.
Dear Dave Chaplin
