Ducks and roosters: an overview of the distictions between employeers and contractors seminar paper

Published on 18 Nov 04 by WESTERN AUSTRALIAN DIVISION, THE TAX INSTITUTE

This paper focusses on identifying when a worker is an employee and when they may be classed as an independent contractor. Issues discussed include:

  • the traditional common law test
  • putting the question in context - unfair dismissal laws, employee entitlements, employer liability
  • recent developments in the application of the test by courts and tribunals
  • the vexed question of labour hire contracts - just who is the employer?
  • the developing concept of 'joint employment'
  • managing the risks.
