Good Morning

My name is ***** ***** I am a NSW Solicitor. Thank you for your question, and will do my best to assist you with your question. Please understand this is not legal advise Please understand this is not legal advise but a guide to assist you.

I would suggest you be an employee because you also get annual leave and sick leave.

As a contractor you are not eligible for that. You get the $36 and of that you pay the GST to the government and you pay your own tax and also are not covered for Workers Compensation. If the position is an employment situation the Independent contractor contract is a sham.

Stay as an employee.

I hope this makes sense and is of assistance. if there is nothing further

thank you for using my services.

If I have missed anything, or you have any further questions please let me know

If there is anything else in the future please do not hesitate to ask.
