Worker Status

At Advantage Solicitors, we understand that the employment status of workers can be a complex and often confusing area of law. If you are unsure about your employment status, it is important to seek legal advice to understand your rights and entitlements. Our team of experienced employment law solicitors can provide you with the guidance and support you need.

Worker status refers to the legal classification of an individual in relation to their employment. There are three main categories of employment status: employee, worker, and self-employed. Each status has different rights and entitlements under UK employment law.

Workers are entitled to certain basic employment rights, such as the right to receive the National Minimum Wage, paid holiday, and protection against discrimination. However, workers do not have the same level of rights as employees, such as the right to claim unfair dismissal or to receive redundancy pay.

It is important to note that worker status is not determined by the job title or the terms of the contract alone. The reality of the working relationship is what determines an individual’s status. For example, if an individual works regular hours, is required to carry out the work personally, and is subject to the control of their employer, they may be considered a worker.

If you are unsure about your employment status or believe that you have been misclassified, our team of experienced employment law solicitors can help you understand your rights and options. We can assist you with reviewing your employment contract, negotiating with your employer, and representing you in any legal proceedings.
