Re: need some advice for new business

Unfortunately you can't use someone who would be self employed. I tried to do this as a massage therapist working in hotels, the answer was no, the hotels had to employ me as an employee. I still work for a hotel, on call, but as an employee, with a zero hours contract.

The problem you have with employing someone on a zero hours contract is, you don't have to provide them with set hours.. But equally they don't have to be constantly available. If you get a last minute booking and they are busy elsewhere, you're stuck.

Edit: but you can make a contract that says "you get paid X francs per massage.. But you are not garunteed any work"

Whats is the benefit you get from employer? they still pay all social security? and after all hours you work then you get salary slip to pay your tax the end of the year? in case you get sick? vacation? you get the same as full time employee? I want to hire few of therapists because i work also but i need extra to helping me.:-)

They pay my AHV and accident insurance and yes get payslips as normal employee. No sick pay or holiday, as I have no guaranteed hours.

just curious to understand. How do they calculate your AHV/AVS and insurances as for example that month you had no put no hours in so salary would be zero? Is there some kind of minimum on AHV and other insurances so you are protected at all times?
