Getting employment status right is key in any business, but particularly in the Live! arena. Currently, the Government has initiated an inquiry into the future world of work with a specific focus on the status and rights of different types of worker – so this area of law could change quickly.

This session will take you through the basic “language” and law, and what the future may hold, whilst also looking at some specific sector focused scenarios.

We will focus in particular on: 

  •  Employment status
    • What is it?
    • What is an employee? A worker? A freelancer? A volunteer?
    • The consequence of getting the employment status wrong

  • Employment Tribunal claims
    • HMRC audits
    • National Minimum Wage audits

  • What types of volunteer are there?
    • How can you ensure someone is a volunteer whether from an employment, National Minimum Wage of tax perspective
    • If you engage and provide volunteers to others, are you doing this correctly?

 This session will finish at 6.15pm followed by drinks and an opportunity to network.

Our LS Live series is open to those dealing with legal issues in the live entertainment industry: from live music to theatre; experiential to sport; product launches to festivals; and exhibitions to one-off global events.

We know the value of the exchange of ideas and bringing people who face similar issues together. We want to help facilitate this, while also offering some hot topic training tailored for the live industry.
