Concerning the issue of whether we are a casual worker or a an employee there is many criteria to consider for example the time we work for the employer, our skills, whether he employs us only in case of shortage or during peak time or he uses us in the normal running of our business...etc. However I would like to know if the conclusive evidence is not when the P45 has been issued because if it has been issued one year after the start of employment this means that we are now an employee. It is up to the employer to decide if he need us anymore or nor and as a consequence if he send us our P45 or not. If the employer decides because it is not convenient for him not to issue a P45 at the end of each project we could be consider as an employee There is also the issue of HMRC and in order the employer not to pay tax maybe a worker has to work only for a small period of time and not come back for a long time There is also the issue of the difference between temporary employee and a casual worker
Hi everyone, I recently got an investigation for being absent/sick from work for the past year. I was invited to the investigation on 21.03.2011. On 25.03.2011 I got a letter to say I had attend a stage 2 meeting (this refers to the investigation meeting) and also confirm I am on stage 2 and if I am sick in the next 12 mths I could go on to stage 3 and maybe dismissed from the company. What I am really puzzled is that how can they put me on stage 2 when I have never been on stage 1? Also I was invited for an investigation meeting and not a stage 2 meeting! I just wonder if anyone here can clarify this for me? In the investigation meeting the manager who interview told me that stage 1 was "back to work interview" after each sickness/absent period. I look this up on google and found that this is not true , its about our welfare rather than a disciplinary procedure. I feel my employers are not following the correct procedure and should I just stand back and let them do whatever they want ? Or should I write a letter to dispute the stage 2? Many Thanks in advanced for your help.. x
