One of the important duties for Employers to adhere to is correctly assessing their workers. Firstly it needs to be understood who is considered as a worker. This generally means someone who ordinarily works in the UK under a contract of employment. There are various rules on this and advice is required.

Understanding Qualifying Earnings and the age minimums and maximums is also part of the assessment of workers. See the table in the Worker Categories section of the website for further information.
