In the last few years there has been a huge rise in people providing their services as self-employed contractors. We’ve also had the IR35 changes to deal with and some significant new judgments from the Supreme Court which alter the legal landscape on employment status.
With different statuses such as employee, ‘worker’, self-employed, inside-IR35 contract and outside-IR35 contractor to complicate the issue, it’s no wonder that employers need reliable, expert advice on what a person’s employment status is and the implications for tax, NIC and employment law rights.
Our legal team specialise in understanding these subtle differences and in guiding you through the minefield so that you can ensure your staff have the right status to suit the needs of your business and your appetite for legal risk.
We can help you navigate the ins and outs of IR35 and sort your ‘employees’ from your ‘workers’. We’ll share with you the latest legal developments on ‘casuals’ and zero-hours contracts. We’ll support you when you’re planning your latest venture and help you commercially and realistically assess the risks that come with engaging these different types of workers, depending on the flexibility and commitment that you need.
