Flexible contracts and freelancer contracts

Flexible contracts and freelancer contracts

Using freelancers or other flexible workers can be a wise choice. However, with the introduction of the wet DBA [Employment Relationships Deregulation Act] and the abolition of the VAR [Declaration of Independent Contractor Status], employers have important questions. A flexible employment relationship with a freelancer has obligations for the employer. The law is currently taking a lot of interest in this area. Previously, the separation between employee and freelancer was strict, but now the client can be held liable as an employer in certain cases for accidents at work. The lawyers at De Haij & Van der Wende know the specific rules that apply to flexible workers and can give you the proper advice about this.
