(Browne Jacobson Legal Seminar) - IR35 and Contractor Status Issues
The use of contractors in the workplace remains a challenging area and we would very much enjoy your company and contribution at our session where we will discuss:
- The IR35 rules - The rules are changing in April 2020, however public authorities have been grappling with the new regime since April 2017. It is clear that there remain some questions around the practical application of the rules.
- Contractor status issues - We have seen a number of Employment Tribunal claims where contractors have argued that their true status is either employee or worker of the end-user, irrespective of whether they are engaged under a personal services company. How to assess the risks and what are the consequences?
Bridget Prosser, a Partner at Browne Jacobson, will be delivering this session on IR35 and Transfer Fees. Bridget has over 18 years of experience advising NHS organisations, national healthcare practices and blue chip clients in the commercial sector on various aspects of employment law. This includes carrying out employment investigations for the public sector, defending highly sensitive and complex employment tribunal claims, TUPE (including out-sourcing and re-tendering), restructuring and redundancies and doctor disciplinary and performance issues.
Bridget works closely with Browne Jacobson’s health and social care team who act for more than 50 NHS bodies including NHS England, 150 local authorities, and major independent sector providers. Highly rated by leading independent legal directories Chambers & Partners and Legal 500, the team is widely acknowledged to have one of the country’s leading health and social care practices, with particular expertise in Court of Protection, especially deprivation of liberty, and general advisory matters.
