    UIF

    Hi everyone

    Can somebody please advise, do you need to register for UIF as a sole trader (for yourself)? If so how do you work the amount due if you don't draw a formal salary, and draw on an ad-hoc basis, i.e as and when you need to? Also what about casual employment for people?

    Thanks all.

    Hi Imp - as far as I know you only need register for UIF if you are an employer.

    I'd suggest we've reached a point where there's no such thing.
    The trouble with opportunity is it normally comes dressed up as work.

    Definition of an employee

    The Act includes a very broad definition of an employee, namely any person who assists in carrying out or conducting the business of an employer or who works for another person and receives any remuneration. An employee who works more than 24 hours per month is automatically protected by minimum standards set out in the Act. Employers should be careful of words such as “casual’ and “temporary” when categorising an employee, as the Act does not recognise these descriptions.
