Employees Vs Contractors


As an employer you want to set up your business structure in the most effective manner. It is often said that real estate is a people business and success depends on the people you work with. It is therefore critical that your employment structure reflects your business objectives and attracts and retains the talent you want. 

Employment in the real estate sector can often be a combination of employees and contractors, but how do you decide which structure is suitable for your business?

This webinar will explore the key differences between employees and contractors, focussing on employment structures from a legal and accounting perspective. Some of the issues to be covered are:

• Contractors vs Employees for the purpose of:
                - Common law (including an update on recent High Court decisions) 
                - State payroll 
                - Superannuation guarantee 
                - WorkCover 

• Conducting a basic self-assessment
• Licensing
• Practical steps to mitigate risk.
