  • they can’t send someone else to do their work

  • they can join the business’s pension scheme
  • the business’s disciplinary and grievance procedures apply to them
  • they work at the business’s premises or at an address specified by the business
  • their contract sets out redundancy procedures
  • the business provides the materials, tools and equipment for their work
