Hoping everybody is staying well in the new COVID world.
I am engaging a student with my company who lost his job due to Pandemic. The student has an ABN and I am advised by my accountant engaging anybody with the ABN is the better option vs Employer-employee relationship ( Casual or Fulltime ). I agree with him due to liability comes with the employer – employee relationship.
1) If I still need to get the 100 point ID check from the candidate/student?
2) Is it mandatory for the student to have his own insurance ( as such it is work from home job) ?
3) The nature of work is not fixed hours but on-demand – what’s the best way to pay the student?
But I would also drill him/her as to if this person is really a contractor or is actually considered an employee. Because it depends on the nature of the working arrangement how the ATO and others view it.
