giant & OC webinar 14th July

A look at legal compliance of platforms – which will survive (and be investible) and which won't?

Join us on time & date : 14th July 2021 @ 13:00

  • Review the regulatory framework that these platforms are subject to, including the Employment Agencies Act and consequences of non-compliance;
  • Discuss how recent case law (including the Supreme Court Uber decision regarding worker status) affects worker engagement by these platforms;
  • Look at platform models which facilitate payments to workers; whether they require FCA authorisation and consequences of operating without authorisation;
  • Consider different worker engagement models, workplace tax status and IR35;
  • Look at how umbrella and PEO companies are working with some platforms to provide payroll and tax compliance;
  • Provide a summary of the key legal risk issues to be considered when operating, developing, investing in or acquiring a people service platform business.
