EMP : Employment Status – Employee, Worker, or Self-Employed?

From only £149 : Includes breakfast, template document pack, and optional post-course HR support

Pimlico Plumbers, Addison Lee, Uber and Deliveroo. What do they have in common? They have all navigated the minefield that is employment status. With the rise of the gig economy this subject is rapidly gaining traction so that business owners need to be sure whether they have engaged on a self–employed, employed or the half-way house that is a worker. Each category attracts different employment rights, some of which can prove costly to a business if back dated.

This half day workshop guides you step by step to help you determine what you currently have in your business. You will undertake this within the workshop using our employment status tool. We will then cover the different types of contractual arrangements that individuals can be placed on. We will also discuss practical actions that you can take so the desired employment status is reflected in the reality of the working arrangements. We will use the Pimlico Plumber case to highlight how these can undermine the desired employment status. With clear post workshop actions for what you need to do back in the business, accompanied by a suite of documents to support you with this task.

Note this course will not cover whether an individual is self-employed or employed for the purposes of HMRC. It is advised that advice from an accountant or tax specialist is sought in relation to this.
