Meeting at GDS
Ikenna joined Erik to work on Smart Answers this week. He seems to have got off to a great start, creating three pull requests in this first week! Welcome, Ikenna.
Refactoring Marriage Abroad
Refactoring Statutory Sick Pay
James resumed working on the Calculate Statutory Sick Pay Smart Answer. He fixed some problems with this Smart Answer at the end of last year and noticed at the time that there was at least one concept missing in the code: a Period of Incapacity for Work (PIW). He’s added that concept to the code but, in doing so, thinks he might’ve uncovered a problem with the existing implementation. He’s opened a pull request with his changes but has parked it until we hear back about the potential bug.
IR35 tax assurances
Having received our signed Working Practice Questionnaires back from GDS we were able to forward them to the Contracting Team. Hopefully this’ll provide all the assurance they need.
James made further improvements to the ordering of tracks within a playlist that he added a couple of weeks back.
Until next time, folks.
