Employment status and IR35 – latest developments and practical impact

Engaging workers and contractors - a debate around current issues and future developments in employment law and IR35

Wedlake Bell, in conjunction with ISE Partners, is pleased to announce further details of its employment status debate.

The debate will explore from the end client’s perspective the evolving legal and tax landscape of engaging workers and contractors, including the following issues:

  • What will “default” worker status mean for businesses?
  • Is HMRC’s employment status test still relevant?
  • What will the impact be of the extension of the off-payroll working rules to the private sector?

This promises to be a fascinating discussion, highly relevant to all organisations who engage individuals as workers or self-employed contractors.

Confirmed panellists:

  • Samantha Hurley, Operations Director, APSCo (the Association of Professional Staffing Companies) – APSCo was formed to give all firms involved in the recruitment of professional talent that have a commitment to excellence, the specialist support and distinctive voice they need to be successful.
