The company is making major changes for Personal Assistants (PAs), the next group of staff to face becoming a “shared service”. There is some information about the changes and an FAQ here.
Financial incentives for those who maintain the highly intrusive DV security clearance are also changing. This is a major improvement on the highly contentious proposal which came out some months ago.
Many employees who were transferred in from FTS have received notification that they will have to start paying for personal calls made on company mobiles. There is no tax reason for this change – HMRC ruled that this is not a taxable benefit in order to relieve employers of the administrative burden of recording which calls were personal. Rather than trying to take this benefit off former FTS employees, why not extend it to all employees with company phones? Some former FTS employees may be able to challenge the change on contractual or TUPE grounds.
