    Hi all,

    I'm hoping someone could give me some advice.

    I am registered as a sole trader and have been working for just one company for over 2 years.

    I work part-time for them, working the same days and hours each week.

    Someone told me that if more than 25% of your earnings come from one company (100% of my earnings come from this company!) then you are considered a temporary employee?

    Can someone shed some light on this? Should I be receiving any benefits - currently I have none.

    Thanks in advance!

    I don't know where this information came from, but it is incorrect. You need to sign an official contract to receive benefits. A temporary employee in the company does not accept any benefits. Such a status is a plus if you want to take out a loan. The company is not obliged to pay taxes for a temporary employee, so the staff increases, but the tax time is less. Therefore, during the pandemic, many entrepreneurs began to use it. My friend even applied to Invoice Factoring in California in order not to lose profit volumes. You can contact a lawyer to know for sure.

    I think I've heard of a similar possibility. If some part of your income comes from one company, you move to a temporary employee.
    However, I do not know what rights you have in this case. I had experience working weekend jobs. I think there are some parallels between these two positions.
    Still, contact an employment law consultant. As a last resort, ask the company's accountant where you work. I think he should know the answer to this question. I hope that I have helped you with your problem. Good luck!
