A few months ago I started a Job as a senior java developer at an IT consultancy. In the interview rounds they introduced themselves as a company that works solely in-house for their clients and don't ever send their employees and make them work on client location or ever bodylease.
However the actual story is quiet different:
- It started off with current situation and lack of projects in the company in the start. I was forced to go into a project and work as a manual tester for a few weeks, which then slowly started to in direction of test automation (as a developer I still don't like this)
- I don't work at my company's location instead I must now travel a fair bit longer to get to the client location and sit and work there 5 days a week.
- One more untoward instance of company's bad behavior popped up when they recently fired a colleague of mine who didn't show intention to work as bodyleased extern at client location.
What I want to ask / convey my boss
How can I tell my boss to stop this practice of body leasing without any adverse risks on my career? I fear great backlash and have the fear that the same that happened to my colleague could happen to me.
Bodyleasing in my personal opinion is unethical anyway.
