Employees, contractors and tech businesses – recognising and addressing the issues

20th Sep 2021 10:00am - 11:00am Hosted by Berwins Digital

Innovation is the cornerstone of great tech businesses and at the heart of that innovation sits outstanding individuals.

Employees, contractors, consultants and directors – all can have a part when it comes to making businesses thrive, but what mix is best?

How should a business engage with the people working for it? What happens if things don’t go to plan?

Join us as we bring together members of Berwins’ in-house employment, corporate and digital teams to give the whole picture and help you to make the informed decisions which can be the difference between success and failure.


First, we’ll explore the building blocks:

– Employment status definitions and rights
– Legal exceptions – including IR35
– Different structures and how they impact business value


We’ll then turn to look at managing and motivating people:

– Eligibility for participation in Employee Ownership Trusts or EMI Schemes
– Ownership of Intellectual Property by employees, contractors and brought in by founders and others
– Data protection issues and how they differ dependent on status and business activity

Finally, we’ll turn to what happens when key people decide to leave:

– Options and the impact on business
– The use and enforcement of restrictive covenants
