If recruiter goes broke ...

If you're working through a recruiter who goes broke, it's a good opportunity to negotiate a new contract directly with the employer, including getting the margin the recruiter was previously taking.

The recruiter will try to keep all this quiet from you. There's a good article on the subject at Names Faces:

There's more news on this. The recruiter in question started up as a new entity and told its contractors nothing had changed.

In actual fact, the directors of the new entity, who were the same as the directors of the old entity, had only taken over some contracts. They left the others with the failed entity, which means those contractors are just debtors owed money they will never see.

As a result of the Names Face article, a lot of the contractors moved to take over their own contracts.
