ATO cracks down on Employees & Contractor labelling

March 22, 2016

From CCIQ: 


You'll be hard-pressed to find an employer who enjoys paying leave loading, workers' comp, super or tax. But the law takes a dim view of bosses who try to pass employees off as contractors to avoid these costs.


Rules to live by:

• Don't tell an employee that he or she is an independent contractor.

• Don't dismiss or threaten to sack an employee so that you can hire them again as an independent contractor, especially if it's to do similar work.

• Don't lie to an employee - or a former employee - to persuade them to do much the same work on a contractual basis.
