Employment Status


Determining whether someone is employed or self-employed can be difficult, and reaching the wrong decision may be hugely expensive.

David Kirk guides the reader through the maze of apparently contradictory case law. He divides the tests into the three groups suggested by the leading judgment, laying out the courtsí authorities in order of importance, so that the reader can easily see where any particular ruling fits in to the scheme of things.

This thorough book also embraces the topics of officers, agency workers, personal services companies and special occupations.
