What is the difference between a worker and an employee?

Resolution

Generally, an employee works under a contract of employment. A contract doesn’t need to be in writing; it exists when you and your employer agree terms and conditions of employment.

The contract normally sets out what work the individual is expected to do and the fact that they will be expected to do the work. Put simply, the individual cannot send someone else to do the work for them.

A worker for automatic enrolment purposes is:

• an employee under a contract of employment aged between 16 and 74 inclusive

• who works or normally works in the UK

For full details on different types of employment status check the details provided by gov.uk here.
