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"
