Royal Bank of Scotland IT contractor ban sparks murmurs of legal action

The point of contracting is that you're not tied to a single employer and can end the contract whenever you like, without losing accrued benefits (because you're employed by your own company, not the client). Permies start on probation and have to accrue holiday and other benefits over the first year of employment. Imagine having to start that over from nothing every six months.
