“We are delighted to partner with the Yorkshire Enterprise Network and look forward to working with its members to help support them and develop their businesses.”
“We have seen an increase in the numbers of cases being brought by individuals engaged on self-employed contracts seeking to challenge their status in order to obtain valuable employment rights, such as the right to paid holiday and receive the national minimum wage rates etc. These often involve vulnerable workers in fairly low paid jobs.
“The rights of these couriers will be determined by reference to the reality of their working relationship and not by what is set out in a written agreement. Employment tribunals and courts can set aside express contractual terms which are inconsistent with the reality of the relationship of the parties.er
“A few years ago, the Supreme Court examined the status of a group of car valets engaged on self-employed basis and found that they were, in fact, workers. It said that individuals may be considered by HMRC to be self-employed for tax purposes, but they can still be considered to be workers and obtain employment protection.
