Minimum rates of pay, and many protections contained in the Modern Awards and the Fair Work Act (including unfair dismissal protections) apply only to employees. Taxation, superannuation and other payments may operate differently on employees and contractors.
Courts assess whether a person is an employee or a contractor by considering a variety of factors such as:

I approached David regarding an issue that I thought I would have difficulty winning as the company we were dealing with is large and well-funded.
After the first consultation, I felt reassured after the first meeting with the other companies’ solicitor I knew I had made the right decision in having David represent me and glad David was on my side, I even felt slightly sorry for the other solicitor for about one second as David berated him and pursued him regarding the matter at hand.
I got everything I wanted and felt vindicated, having David in my corner made the difference although mild mannered and seemingly placid, once the discussion began, a dogged, fierce and aggressive person took over, coming out punching.
I had a difficult issue with work. David was able to provide advice that cut through the uncertainty and to provide strategic alternatives which in the end delivered a favourable outcome despite unlikely odds. I recommend him for employment law matters both simple and complex.
Thank you again for helping me through this challenging time and for delivering the best possible outcome on my behalf. I am grateful for your support, professionalism and excellent advice throughout.
This has been a very difficult time for my family and it has helped immensely to have your guidance throughout this process. Without your assistance, we would certainly be in a more precarious situation.
Most of all, thank you for your caring approach.
