Recruitment News – Oct 2019

IR35 into the private sector

Following my Blog last week IR35 is still hot news in the recruitment industry

I have already written about Barclays Bank and Lloyds Banking Group putting an end to contractors, with similar issues arising when the same rules were applied to the public sector, the question is being asked…

“HMRC believes legitimate Personal Service Company (PSC) engagements are relatively rare?”

This is bad news for the many contractors whose work falls outside of the IR35 rules.

Moves towards a blanket ban are happening now because contracts in some sectors, such as IT, are often three to six months in duration, so the April 2020 introduction of the new rules is now near enough to trigger action.

OH and Wellbeing News

Bupa and Optima Health have partnered to increase occupational health access

Health insurance and healthcare provider Bupa has partnered with The UK’s largest OH provider Optima Health in a move designed to expand access to occupational health services for employers.

The tie-up means that from early 2020 Bupa’s 900 corporate customers will be able to access a network of more than 500 occupational health practitioners across more than 120 sites, giving them increased levels of OH support and more flexibility.

The move comes against an increased focus on, and discussion around, how to widen access to occupational health and workplace health support.
