Business Briefing: When is a freelancer really an employee?
Registration: 8.45am | Event: 9am-10.30am
Self-employment and part-time work are extremely common in the creative and cultural industries. 44% of people are self-employed compared to 13% in the UK as a whole. So the issue of engaging “freelancers” and how to assess when they are self-employed or when in reality they may be employees, is a very pertinent topic for the cultural sector, and is important to get right both for the worker and the company for whom they are working.
Delivered by Barry Nichol, Partner in Anderson Strathern’s award winning Employment Law and Pensions Law unit, and his colleague Martin Campbell, Director of Tax Services, this informal session will help you better understand the issues around employing temporary or freelance workers, giving you plenty of time to ask all those burning questions, and is for anyone with HR, financial, administrative or project planning responsibilities.
