Same same but different – the fuzzy line between contractor and employee


Your Hosts: Jane Supit and Paul Barker

Cost: $59.95


This instructional presentation is aimed at providing guidance on the legal difference between contractors and APS employees. It discusses the legal rights and obligations of contractors and the legal rights and obligations of agencies who employ them both under the employment contract but also under legislation including the Work Health and Safety Act 2011, the Fair Work Act 2009 and anti-discrimination laws. The obligation of an agency to pay superannuation is also considered. 

This video is 25 minutes in length and will equate to ½ CPD point.
