sorry I was offline by the time you had replied. If you are genuinely an employee then you will have minimum statutory rights, which could be equivalent to those other permanent employees get.
First of all I suggest you check this information to try and determine if you are really an employee, even if you are referred to one by the employer – it is not what you are labelled as that matters, rather than what you do:
Assuming you are an employee then you get the following basic rights through law:
A more thorough list of your rights at work can be found here:
Hope this clarifies your position? If you could please let me know that would be great, thank you
thats a help, i will check the links, they know they are on dodgey ground i just need them to admit I'm employed, HMRC,NI,ACAS ETC all say that after a year on PAYE you assume that you are employed.
it is not as simple as hat though, establishing your employment status is not an easy task and there is no single test that can be used. It is usually irrelevant what a person is labelled as by their employer because their status would depend on the overall employment relationship, not on what they referred as.
Following years of case law, a number of established factors have generally been accepted as a reasonably accurate way of establishing whether someone is an employee or self employed. The courts would still use some of these to get an overall picture of the employment relationship and determine the person's employment status.
ok thank you
you are welcome, all the best
