Employing Freelancers and Sub Contractors is Getting Riskier

Tuesday 7th Feb 2017, from 8:30am to 10:30am
Cost: Free

The outcomes of current cases involving companies such as Uber with self-employed sub-contractors/freelancers claiming they are really employees could trigger big issues in employment status, minimum wage and HMRC compliance in relation to PAYE/NI and even Auto Enrolment.

Additionally, with the introduction of gender pay gap reporting, the apprenticeship levy and changes to rules for employing foreign workers, employers need to be fully aware of the potential impacts on their business in 2017.

At this event, in partnership with Sagegreen, we’re going to answer:

–       When is a subcontractor or freelancer really an employee?

–       What does the Uber case study tell us

–       Where do zero hour contracts fit in

–       What can happen if you get it wrong in employment law terms

–       What can you do to avoid a problem

Additionally, we will also look at what the tax man thinks about this, what guidelines are available from HMRC, what it might cost you if you get it wrong, and how you can protect your business.
