Thank you for the reply to my questions.
However I have have previously used this tool, http://www.hmrc.gov.uk/calcs/esi.htm and it indicates that I am an employee, and not self-employed.I have phoned gov uk the tax offices, explaining that I have taken this test online and that I have signed this measly contract. They were certainly not sympathetic towards me or my problem and told me without even thinking that I am self-employed. I am so confused at present, and this has really affected my life in many ways.
I am wanting to know if I signed this straight forward contract, that the client gave me.... will it count against me as being self-employed/ employed.
May the client just change my salary from £2,400.00 pm ($600) per week, on the telephone to an hourly rate of £10.00 and hour without any formal notice to prepare myself mentally and financially?
I am now only earning around £400.00 to £500.00 a month. This has put me into financially difficulty and struggling to meet my commitments monthly. Although they have changed my salary, I am still performing the same duties, as they see me as a fast worker and know that I get the job done in less time than other employees from the agencies.
I am not somebody that can write proper letters to acas, is there somebody that could assist me with this. Please could you refer or assist me on how to go about getting either a lawyer to assist me in this matter or somebody that will help draft my letters or act on my behalf.
Thank you,You may use the Law Society's find a solicitor search facility to find a solicitor who is able to assist you:
It does not matter what contract you have signed, if the tool is showing employment status, then it is very likely that you are an employee.You may call ACAS and see what they have to say first, you do not need to write letters to them.
