JobsAware Principles of Good Practice for Umbrella Companies

Payment Intermediaries and Umbrella Companies should:

  1. Demonstrate that they are working proactively to protect contractor rights. 

  2. Promote JobsAware as a place to refer contractors that have concerns about their employment. 

  3. Promote JobsAware as a place to refer contractors that need general employment help or advice. 

  4. Engage with the opportunity to engage with UK Government, through a Payment Intermediaries sub-committee, to discuss issues and opportunities in the sector. 

  5. Report abuse against themselves, such as contractor fraud, to JobsAware.
