Employment Lawyers Can Answer Your Employment Law Questions
I am sorry. I am going to opt out of this question for another expert to help you.
Hi, different lawyer here. Can you please clarify what do you specifically want to know about this, please?
Hello, I am not sure if you saw my query above: Can you please clarify what do you specifically want to know about this, please?
Thank you. What your employment status is does not depend on what the employer has decided to label you as, but how you are treated. So even though you may be labelled by the employer as being self-employed, you could be an employee in reality and that is what your actual status would be.
As to the pay you receive, to be honest they can pay you whatever they want, as long as it is at least equal to the minimum wage. It makes no difference if others in the industry and with your experience usually get paid more – that is down to each employer to decide and if you are not happy with the low pay, you simply do not have to take that job. And yes they can offer lower pay for the probationary period and then once that has passed to increase that – it is perfectly legal.
