As a contractor, I fall within the IR35 regulations, which means I get classed as an full time employee in order to  pay full PAYE tax,  but get no benefits such as holiday/sickness pay and can have my wages reduced with no consultation (as recently happened) with a take it or leave it attitude on by the employer (the government by the way).

If i'm classed by tax man as a permanent employee, then I should also benefit form the protection they have,
