Do I have to cover my contractors and sub-contractors?
This depends on whether the contractor or sub-contractor is defined as a ‘worker’. The term ‘worker’ includes:
- A contractor to whose service an industrial award or agreement applies;
- A contractor engaged to work for the purpose of your trade or business whose remuneration is in substance for his personal manual labour or services.
