Both the REC (Recruitment and Employment Confederation) and APSCo (The Association of Professional Staffing Companies) have recently lobbied government to raise and highlight the issues surrounding payment of supply teachers and support staff.
In their communications, both of the highly respected sector bodies make it clear that it is unfair to place the burden of paying National Insurance and Pension contributions on staffing companies for any furloughed workers.
Both letters have been sent to the Secretary of State for Education, Rt Hon Gavin Williamson MP.
