hey HB sorry for the late reply, ive started a new role and working 65 hour weeks.
to be honest i havnt done anything apart from check out their linkedin profile which i was tasked with updating etc. the owner now appears to have taken on a director of training and employed another staff member as well. it was just me before running the whole training department.
i was tempted to contact hmrc but i am still uneasy as i dont want them to chase me for unpaid tax if he manages to talk his way out of it.
in theory i was owed several days holiday as he did not pay me for a day off i had to attend a wedding. plus i would have accumulated holiday during employment.
i worked for the company from sept to nov 2016. i have never asked him for a reference and when asked during interviews why i left, i always explain that after 8 weeks i was told i was self employed and was forced to leave. most companies understand this.
i dont have the original advert so even if i did report him it would be his work against mine would it not?
im still angry that this "business man" was willing to take advantage of me, get me in trouble with hmrc and get rid of me when his realised i was onto his games. i dont lose sleep over it, but i can see why some businesses go under and get in trouble with hmrc now. this chap has an expensive lifestyle whilst conning his employees.
if i was to report him, would hmrc do anything to me? if they ever did contact me, could i show them statements which show £260 paid in every week? ive just found a job description for the role i asked for and an invite to interview email. nothing in both of them indicates a self employed position. i simply would not take it if that was the case.
