Sejal Raja and Safwan Afridi will be running an employment law focussed workshop. Specifically, they will be covering the employment status considerations that individuals need to have when providing services as an independent contractor on their own account or via a limited company. The second half of the workshop will focus on what employers should and should not do when hiring an employee.
The workshop is specifically for individuals that provide services as a self-employed contractor and/or individuals that are looking to employee an individual for the first time.

This workshop will be suitable for individuals that carry out work as a self-employed contractor and want to take steps to ensure that their employment status does not leave them vulnerable to IR35 regulations or other tax liabilities. It will also be ideal for any individuals that run a small company or partnership and are looking to employ their first employee and or have recently done so. There will be a specific focus on the recruitment process and the steps to follow once the individual becomes an employee.
We would encourage delegates to send in any specific questions that they may have for our experts in advance of the workshop so that these queries can be covered by Sejal and Safwan.
