Do I need to think about work environment?
We want you to be able to carry out your assignments without running into difficulties or hurting yourself. We therefore take work environment issues very seriously, as must you when you work through us. Always refer to our General Terms & Conditions to find out what aspects of health, safety and the work environment are regulated. Because we are not there when you work, it is very important that you’re familiar with the regulations, terms and conditions applicable in your industry. You must always report any work environment issues to us, as per the procedures found under work environment on our website. If you are in doubt about your situation at work, please contact us either via Customer Support or at firstname.lastname@example.org so we can resolve any issue together.
Am I entitled to sick pay if I’m an independent contractor?
You are entitled to sick pay under certain circumstances, and provided you have pre-registered your assignment when you work through us. Always check the General Terms & Conditions, and the regulations found under Agreements, terms and policies. If you do need to take sick leave, don’t forget to notify us as well as the client. Follow the instructions in the General Terms & Conditions, and read the section on sick pay before you register any assignment. That way you will know what’s needed in advance and won’t risk missing out on sick pay.
What insurance am I covered by?
You are always covered by our accident insurance (TFO), group life insurance (TGL) and liability insurance.
