Gain an understanding of the significance of an employee’s contract
This half-day seminar will cover:
The three types of employment status; self employed, worker and employee – the requirements for each and the legal rights and protections afforded to each.
The different contract types that employers can utilise.
The integration test – self-employed on paper but in practice? Employers should decide whether an individual is an employee or a worker based on how the relationship will or does operate in practice.
Zero hour contracts – individuals on zero hour contracts may be engaged as employees or workers. Employers should decide what employment status to use, utilising the various employment status tests.
Employment status changing during the working relationship – ongoing review of employment status.
What terms is an employer legally obliged to include in a contract and what additional terms should be considered? Rate of pay, holiday accrual, pay entitlements, notice and other terms which relate to the way work will be managed in practice and how this will be different for each employment status.
Evolving case law in the area.
This session will be co-facilitated by Jan Cunningham, Partner MMW
