Johnson Underwood and the Coronavirus.
Firstly take care everyone, keep safe.
Here at Johnson Underwood, we have implemented our Coronavirus strategy. More details will be available on our website shortly.
Business as usual, but we are pre-screening everyone before we meet them, however all of our compliance processes remain in-depth as they have always been. Many of our clients are asking us for contingency planning should their staff have to isolate, we kicked this off, covering a number of positions and levels and the temps interested in working have all been assigned and vetted and know they are on an active reserve list.
Candidates negotiating higher rates because of the shortage of skills are not being tolerated as we neither condone this nor would wish them to jump ship once placed in an assignment and we will not be increasing our fees to cash in, during such troubling times.
Johnson Underwood works with you and for you and this will remain as so. Heads up there is more legislation coming through for April start; yes Inside IR35, but also with the kind of information you have to supply to potential temps, even before they complete the registration process. More information will follow – please be aware of agencies who do not follow the new legislation.
We take an enormous amount of time and effort to ensure we do everything by the book. Until then, take care 😊
