Understanding the difference between contractors and employees, and how the two can be legally blurred, can potentially save real estate agencies thousands of dollars, says O*NO Legal founder Kristen Porter.
Unblurring those lines and a contractor versus employee update from the High Court will be the subject of O*NO Legal’s REAL Membership quarterly training session.
As well as helping determine the difference between contractors and employees, the webinar will discuss what the recent High Court decisions have meant for contractors.
Attendees will also learn why setting up your contractor relationships properly is so important, and breaking down the penalties and costs if you get it wrong, as well as what the court looks for when determining if your team member is a contractor or an employee.
The webinar is only available to REAL members, but for those who join, you’ll receive plenty more than that.
Membership increases the value of agencies by harnessing the power of technology and legal strategy, offering members affordable access to legal professionals and advice.
“You will have lawyers who have your back, and you’ll know you’re always covered,” Ms Porter said.
The membership offers tangible benefits for both start-up businesses and established agencies, as well as residential and commercial sales professionals, and property managers.
“We’re also offering tailored onboarding by a team member, where we will show you inside the membership and how to use it to get the most value from it,” Ms Porter said.
Regardless of your membership level, you’ll have one-on-one access to lawyers, the opportunity to partake in regular sessions and the ability to have your legal questions answered.
The team will also hold members accountable to their plans and visions, by steering them in the right direction, and offering regular check-ins.
All levels of membership also have access to the monthly group Q+A session where you can pick a lawyer’s brain and learn from what other agencies have done in similar situations when you have an issue.
There’s also a new administration implementation program available for the time poor and cost conscious.

- Legal update alerts when business laws change that affect an agency
