Event description

As the gig economy continues its rapid growth in Australia and across the world, an increasing number of businesses are turning to freelancers to complete a range of tasks. The Australian Industry Group found that over one third of Australians were engaged in some form of freelance work over the past year. 

The most in-demand freelance jobs cut across a variety of different skill sets, including: mobile and software development, graphic design, excel data entry, copywriting and proofreading. Yet, one thing almost all freelancers have in common is a need for more clarity around their legal obligations.

At our event Secure Yourself as a Freelancer, we’ll explore:

  • How to determine if you are an independent contractor
  • What your legal obligations are as a freelancer
  • Whether you should have a formal contract, and if so, what it should include
  • Common tips and traps of freelance work
