Contractors vs Employees Webinar


Event Details

4 August 2022, 12:30 pm - 1:30 pm

Contractor arrangements are often adopted because of the freedoms they provide businesses in their hiring practices.

However, cases continue to show the costs involved when such arrangements are improperly introduced, including penalties for sham contracting, back-payments of leave and other Award entitlements, and superannuation, amongst other matters.

To help you avoid these unforeseen costs in your business, our contractors vs employees webinar will provide you with a clear and up to date understanding of the important nuances between the two options for engaging workers, and assist you in avoiding some of the pitfalls often experienced by employers when things go wrong.

This webinar will cover:

  • The High Court’s recent approach in determining whether a worker is an employee or an independent contractor including, when a worker is really an employee for minimum wage, unfair dismissal, leave, and other employment related entitlements
  • Superannuation, PAYG and payroll tax considerations
  • Sham contracting and unfair contracting
  • Recent approaches taken by the Courts and Fair Work Ombudsman after the High Court’s decision

Understanding the legal risks and parameters around independent contracting is now more important than ever. This webinar will assist your management team to implement legally compliant arrangements and fulfil your business’ legal obligations.

This webinar will be presented by David Sztrajt, Senior Associate at HR Legal.

Our webinars are delivered free and online, we encourage questions from participants at any time during the webinar. We also run polls and questionnaires to keep you engaged and interacting.
