Hi - sorry I've been out at work all morning. Yes you can clarify some points - the school where I work want to dictate what I can earn whilst still claiming that I am "self employed" . Surely if I'm self employed I can charge whatever I like for my services and they do not have the right to specify what I can charge? They are trying to set up contracts with all their peripatetic teachers who have been working at the school for years. The school is issuing "guidelines" as to what we can charge but later in the contract it states that if we don't comply with all their rules ( and I assume the fee rate is included in this) they can terminate our right to work there. What I want to know is, is it legal for them to dictate what self employed people can charge? If they are issuing a contract that states that we are self employed then surely we have the right to decide our rates?
If you are self employed you can charge what they like, but then they could say we are not paying that. You either accept x or leave.
Yes it is legal for them to dictate what people charge.
You can either accept it and continue or refuse and risk being asked to leave
Remember you have no rights as a self employed person
Can I clarify anything else?
