Description:

Who would have thought issues such as employment status would have hit the Supreme Court and become headline news?

This year, there have been a number of important decisions in connection with employment status which many may not realise is an extremely important issue that can affect all organisations.
This session is aimed at all organisations who employ staff, whether that be on an employment contract, self-employed or contractor/consultancy basis. The session will look at:
What are the different types of relationship recognised by employment law and why are these important?

  • What is an “employee” (and what rights do such people acquire)?
  • What is a “worker” (and what rights do such people acquire)?
  • What other categories of worker do employers need to be aware of and what special rights do they have?
  • Part time workers
  • Fixed term employees
  • Agency staff
  • Apprentices

Our speakers will focus on the practical issues and remind delegates that while their contracts may say one thing about the nature of the relationship, the tribunal will look at the reality of the relationship and may take a different view. This will be a popular session given its relevance, so early booking is advised.
