Workers’ rights, Partners and LLPs

The worker status of partners, members of a Limited Liability Partnership (LLP) and other atypical workers (such as zero-hours contracts)has created headlines in recent years.

Several high-profile cases made it to the highest courts in the land to decide who is self-employed, who is an employee and who is a worker.

The law on this area is complex and assigning a status to your employment affects your working rights and your right to certain benefits such as holiday pay and the statutory minimum wage.

If you are uncertain about your employment status and your rights arising from it, please contact one of our expert employment lawyers who will  be able to advise you on these issues.
