Employment Law - Employees vs Contractors 2022 - 27 July 2022 (On Demand)


Everything you need to know

When businesses engage employees, contractors and volunteers it is vital both that the individuals are classified correctly from the outset and that the actions of those businesses remain consistent with those classifications. A dispute about employee vs contractor status (for instance) can expose an employer to significant liabilities.
This webinar will cover:

  • the contractual documentation required for each type of relationship and the key differences between the terms and conditions they contain;
  • how the Employment Relations Authority / Employment Court determines the correct classification for an individual, including how they assess the real nature of the relationship and the tests they apply; and
  • a range of recent high profile cases where employment status has been at issue.


27 July 2022


Attendees will learn the key differences between employees, contractors and volunteers and their documentation; the legal risks associated with misclassification and how to avoid those risks; and the advantages and disadvantages of engaging employees, contractors or volunteers.


This webinar is targeted at professionals who either advise clients on employment relationships and their issues or those who have HR responsibilities within their organisations.


William Fussey, Associate, SBM Legal.
