I do fall into ir35. Does this mean I have employees rights
Expert:  Ben Jones replied 1 year ago.
Not automatically, you could be IR35 for tax purposes but in employment law still e self employed. So that's why I was asking if you have taken one of these employment status tests like the one I mentioned to see if you are more likely to be an employee or elf employed?
