Hey, Thought it was interesting that IPSE, an advocacy body for the freelancers and contractors, has called for a legislative definition of what classifies a worker as self-employed. They want to it to take in four points: Having autonomy in their work. For freelancers this means the ability to send substitutes and for there to be no requirement to do work outside what is agreed Having control over working arrangements. Self-employed people are able to decide how to complete their tasks and the hours and location they choose to work in Taking on business risk. Self-employed take responsibility for their finance and tax responsibilities and can be paid on a per task basis Level of independence from clients. This would include things such as having to wear a uniform or using your own tools and equipment to complete your work. What do you think? To me, it looks like it would help employers too. And, it could address some of the issues around the gig economy that have started to cause issues over the last year or two.
