BDB employment lawyers will host a briefing on the issue of ‘employment status’.
The session will comprise a talk about the legal distinction between being an employee, a worker, a contractor, a volunteer and about the various types of arrangements such as flexible contracts, outsourcing arrangements, the use of zero hour contracts and home working. Different legal consequences will flow from each status and arrangement. The aim is to provide an overview so that attendees have a clearer picture of how they may be able better to protect their organisation.
The session will also include time for an interactive discussion with questions & answers with an opportunity to share ideas, experiences and good practice tips among the attendees. This discussion will be led by the employer lawyers who can provide their thoughts and guidance on areas of concern to attendees.
