Employment Status & Flexible Working Practices - A Practical Guide
Understanding the employment status of your workforce is crucial, not least because it determines the extent of your legal obligations.
A lot of recent media attention has focused on the ‘gig economy’ and the growing trend towards flexible working practices. These arrangements have sparked considerable debate and focused the gaze of the public (and HMRC) towards employers who are perceived to be ‘gaming the system’ through sham categorisation.
In this live broadcast session, find out:
- The categories of employment status and how (in light of recent case law) tribunals and courts distinguish between the different categories.
- The different rights and obligations that apply to each category
- Which employment status applies in the context of:
- The Equality Act 2010
- Partnerships and LLPs
- Trade union recognition.
- The tax implications of employment status (and how the tax analysis differs from traditional employment analysis).
