Contractor Legal Advice

Contractor Legal Advice Unfortunately contracting is a minefield and that's why you need contractor legal advice. The biggest minefield is IR35. This ws set up to catch disguised contractors, i.e. those people who left a contract on a Friday and started as a contractor on a Monday at the same company doing the same job.

It caught contractors who had been contracting successfully for years. The other potential legal minefield for UK contractors is in being sued for negligence. If IT contractors make a mistake it could end up costing the company hundreds of thousands, or even millions, of pounds. They could, potentially, sue the contractor. That is why it is wise for the contractor to get Professional Indemnity Insurance. [caption id="attachment_893" align="alignnone" width="225"] Contractor Legal Advice[/caption]
