You are currently managing a large company project. After a meeting with your team, you realize you need additional assistance for this project.
You do not have time for a long recruitment process and know an experienced professional who is available on short notice. This individual has requested to join the team as a freelancer, and not as an employee, in order to avoid paying social security contributions. You are inclined to agree to such request, but wonder if there are any risks related there to.
In this 45 minute webinar, the Bryan Cave European Employment Team provides an insight to the legal and practical issues which arise should such a situation arise in France, Germany, Italy or the UK.
The webinar includes considerations of when it is possible to hire an independent consultant and how to do so. We also provide useful strategies to help you minimize the risk of recharacterization of this relationship as an employment relationship.
