When do you become an employee?

Friday 26 April, 2019

What is an employee?

An employee is a person intending to work. So if you have been offered and accepted a job but are yet to start working, you are an employee.

If you have been offered a job subject to some sort of condition, for example, a satisfactory medical test, you are not an employee yet because you have not been able to satisfy that condition.

Can a job offer be withdrawn?

No. If you have been offered and accepted a job, your employer cannot cancel the contract in between the date it was agreed upon and the proposed start date. If they do, they may be at risk of action being taken against them.

If you are unsure whether you are an employee or not, or you have had your contract cancelled after accepting a job, give us a call to see how we can help you in your situation.
