I was hoping that someone might be able to help. I am present on a couple week contract with an agency and this is the first time I have worked with them although I have been registered with them for several months now. I received a phone call at 6pm this evening (which I missed) saying that I need to pay £44 for a new CRB as the other agency that I am signed to are refusing to allow portability. Now I have several problems with this, first of all I specifically remember asking the agency that I signed to and did the CRB through that I would need to have portability with this and they said that was fine. Now I am being told that it has been refused, can they do this even though I paid for it? Also, why have the agency that I am working through not checked this before now and why am I being held to ranson for the rest of this assignement because they haven't done their job and I'm pretty much being told to pay up or lose another few days work without any guarantee. This CRB cover the same area I'm so angry.... Can they do this?
