It is important for an employer to be clear about whether an employee is an employee or actually self-employed. There are tax, national insurance and employment legislation issues around an individual's status so it is essential that an employer does not seek to miscategorise an employee's genuine status, either intentionally or unintentionally. The key to whether an individual is self-employed or not lies in the relationship between individual and employer and what happens in practice in that relationship.
