HMRC Employment Status Indicator
With a rising number of student jobs now being advertised as self-employed it can be difficult to know whether or not an employer is avoiding responsibility for tax and national insurance or whether the job is legitimately for a self-employed person. The HMRC has an online tool that you can use to identify the employment status of an individual, or group of workers for tax purposes.
