Advice being offered for ex-Carillion recruiters

Have your say

FORMER Carillion recruiters have been given advice on how to move forward.

Carillion, which looked after a number of services at Queen Alexandra Hospital in Cosham, went into liquidation last month.

Now, the Association of Professional Staffing Companies (APSCo) has hosted an online seminar to advise firms on how to progress.

The news comes ahead of a meeting between the Work and Pensions and Business Select Committees, Deloitte and The Pensions Regulator.

The meeting is being held as part of a joint inquiry into the crisis to determine their role in the collapse of Carillion.

General counsel at APSCo Tania Bowers said: ‘As details around contractual rights continue to unfold, we are advising members to keep abreast of updates .

‘Organisations with fewer than 50 staff have twelve months to lodge a complaint about a larger private sector client, who has failed to pay, although they must have already tried to resolve the dispute directly.’

APSCo has also urged recruiters to make use of the Small Business Commissioner’s complaints scheme to recover unpaid invoices.
