Employment status, or the determination of whether someone is employed or self-employed, seems to many to be an area where the courts have gone out of their way to cause as much confusion as possible. Anyone trying to research it on his own will come up against a spider’s web of different tests, and incoherent and often contradictory judgments from over 140 cases that have been fought in the courts since 1890.
In this book, the author guides the reader through this maze and shows that the courts’ decisions are in fact much more coherent than is commonly made out. In order to explain things clearly he divides the tests into the three groups suggested by the leading judgment from which most others follow. He also lays out the courts’ authorities on any particular subject in order of importance, with the higher courts’ verdicts first, so that the reader can easily see where any particular judgment fits in to the scheme of things.
As this is a tax book, it also covers issues of territoriality, and people other than employees who are caught in the PAYE net, such as officers, agency workers, and those with personal service companies; it concludes with special rules and considerations for people working in particular businesses.
