Many businesses utilise contractors in the belief that they are more protected than if they utilise the employee/employer relationship. This is a misconception.
In this informative talk, HR professional Kathryn MacMillan breaks through this misconception and explains how in many cases you can be more at risk from using Contractors in your business than using Employees. An ABN does not mean the worker is a true independent contractor. And, what about Super payments? Do you need to pay this or not? Could you be prosecuted under the terms of ‘Sham contracting’?
