People Management;1/15/2009, Vol. 15 Issue 2, p34
The article focuses on how organizations can determine whether individuals are employees. It distinguishes that an employee has full statutory employment rights, including the right to not be unfairly dismissed after a certain period of service, while workers have only limited legal protection. Also, failing to recognise employees' rights can lead to employment tribunal claims that are costly and time-consuming to defend. It cites the three main factors that indicate the existence of a contract employment, such as mutuality of obligations.
