by | Apr 4, 2022

Our first episode of the four-part Call My Lawyer! series addresses key legal considerations of the business of medicine with regard to the employment of doctors by medical business.

Hanya’s expert guest is Megan Warren, who is the principal lawyer at Burke & Associates Lawyers, in High Street Armadale, Victoria, Australia.

Megan has provided excellent legal advice to Hanya’s medical business clients over the years – now our listeners will benefit from the knowledge shared by both their legal and business insights.

Today’s episode deals specifically speaking about the case study of Thomas and Naaz v Chief Commissioner of State Revenue ( 2021) NSWCATAD259, with reference to two other recent case studies, to show that a pattern is emerging with regard to the type of decisions being made across Australia.

The ‘employee or contractor’ distinction is widely regarded as a complex distinction and a tricky one for businesses to make.
