Many employers misunderstand the distinction between an employee and a contractor and assume that a worker must be one or the other for all purposes. If only it were that simple.....

Often, there can be different answers to the employee vs contractor question:

  • Are you asking this question for the purposes of superannuation, workers' compensation or leave benefits?
  • What are the other risks of engaging this type of worker?
  • What about safety? Who's responsible for that?
  • Can I stop a contractor from poaching my customers or staff?
  • What protections can I put in place?

I will answer all of these questions and more at our next seminar.

This workshop will be of benefit to advisers and businesses. Advisers are encouraged to invite their clients to attend.
