Consultancy agreements and employment status
Do you know the employment status of all your staff? Do you need assistance in clarifying their position?
There are various types of working arrangements and we understand that it may be difficult to keep track of these however each arrangement provides the employer and employee with different legal rights. It is important from the outset that you decide the type of arrangement you want with an individual and ensure that the documents you provide them mirror that aim. Our dedicated team are on hand to analyse your working arrangements and advise you on the most suitable type of arrangement between the business and an individual.
With all agreements, one size does not fit all, and therefore it is important that you have agreements and contracts which are tailored to each individual. This will ensure that the business is protected comprehensively.

When would I need a consultancy agreement?
A consultancy agreement is an agreement between a business or individual (the client) and a consultant. The agreement regulates all aspects of the relationship such as hours, pay and the employment status. In many ways a consultancy agreement is similar to an employment contract; however the difference between a consultant and an employee is very different legally.
