Uniforms

If I wear a uniform that means I must be an employee?

Not correct. Wearing a uniform does not automatically mean an individual is an employee.

To correctly determine whether a worker is an employee or contractor, you need to look at the entire working arrangement.

Certainty in Contracting.

The wearing of a uniform and who shoulders the cost of purchase and maintaining the uniform may become a small matter of consideration when considering the question of employee or contractor

  •   A uniform may be issued to a contractor based on the requirements of a third party or legislation
  •   Security guards – must be identifiable as such for public safety
  •   Sales agents – Branded for customer reassurance
  •   Other factors including direction and control have more relevance
