Who is this bundle suitable for?

Suitable for natural medicine practitioners and similar who are hiring staff either as employees or independent contractors.

 

Do I need these documents?

Yes. If you are hiring staff, it is important you have agreements in place to outline the terms of engagement. It is important to know the difference between an employee and a contractor and that you choose the appropriate arrangement. See below for more information.

 

What’s the difference between and Independent Contractor and an Employee?

Independent contractors generally:

  • work for themselves /are their own boss
  • can accept or refuse work
  • control their own working times
  • provide their own equipment
  • have no guarantee of future work
  • are responsible for paying their own super and income tax

Employees generally:

  • work in someone else’s business
  • are subject to controls on how, where and when they do their work
  • are paid a wage
  • have the expectation of ongoing work
  • receive employee entitlements, such as annual leave

 

What is sham contracting?

Sham contracting arrangement is when an employer attempts to disguise an employment relationship as an independent contracting arrangement. This is usually done to avoid paying employee entitlements such as super and income tax. Even if the contractor says they prefer a contractor arrangement, if the actual engagement is more reflective of an employee relationship, or even if you make an innocent mistake, you can still be hit with a fine as well as a back-payment of wages and entitlements.

 

Further Information

We recommend you visit the Fair Work Ombudsman website to read more. If you’re an employer, visit the ATO’s website to learn the tax and super obligations for both employees and contractors and read more about the differences between them. Even if you hire someone as a contractor, you may still need to pay them superannuation if you are paying them for their labour.  If you’re unsure, seek legal advice by lodging a request for legal services via our website or talking to your lawyer of choice.

 

What do I do once these templates are completed?

Once completed, you provide a copy to the employee or contractor you are hiring/engaging. Once in agreed form, both parties execute the agreement.
