How to know if you are employed or self-employed, the difference between the two and how that effects your Liveforce Crew App.
Employed or Self-employed for Liveforce Crew App
Under Company Details there is a section called Employment Status. Here you must select whether you are Employed or Self-employed.
If there is only one option available in Employment Status section it that means the company is only recruiting staff with that particular employment status.
Some companies will take both types on employment status, some take only one. If this is the case there will be no option to choose - there will only be one option available (either employed or self-employed).
This is down to the discretion of each company whether they take on employed or self-employed staff or both, and not something that Liveforce can control or change.
If you are unsure about your employment status or have questions about a particular company's policy over employment status you must contact that company directly.
If you're self employed you will typically manage your own tax and invoice a company for work you do. You will either do your own tax return or you will have an accountant who does it for you.
