Recruiters, IR35 & Gig Economy Models
Recruitment businesses play a key role in the UK economy providing businesses with a flexible labour supply, and helping them find and attract top talent. However, the pace of change in this area in recent years has seen a significant increase in the complexity of running a recruitment business with new laws and regulation to contend. In addition, traditional agency models have been challenge by gig-economy companies, who often have a competitive advantage due to their legal structure and sophisticated technological platforms.
Examples of our work in this areas include advising on:
The employment status of over 100 contractors engaged by a company seeking a listing on AIM.
Gig-economy models, and risk-mitigation strategies.
Agency workers regulations and the Conduct of Business Regulations.
IR35-focused contract reviews and legal reforms.
Drafting and negotiating temp and perm supply contracts.
Transfer fees and related disputes.
Business protection advice for recruiters, involving covenants and confidentiality obligations.
