Many businesses enjoy the flexibility that contract labour can bring to the operation. However, the law around who is a true independent contractor as opposed to an employee is complex and the consequences for getting it wrong are expensive. Unfortunately there is no easy answer to the question of how to determine a person’s status but this webinar will provide you with the factors to consider.

For this webinar we will look at:

● why the distinction is important;
● the factors to look at in determining whether a person is an employee or an independent contractor;
● recent decisions and the impact on employers; and
● how to identify the risks and how to best overcome them.
