The ATC’s members-only Employment Business & Relationships Guide gives you a concise overview of considerations around employment statuses and employment business regulations, as well as employment relationships with freelance translators and interpreters. The guide is tailored for language service companies in the UK.


NEW in the guide: Employment Business Regulations

The Employment Agency Standards Inspectorate (EAS), a government regulator operating under the Department for Business and Trade, has issued guidance for providers of interpreting services to comply with the requirements of the Employment Agencies Act 1973 and Conduct of Employment Agencies and Employment Businesses Regulations 2003.

This guidance indicates that, in EAS’s view, most service providers that supply specialist interpreting or other (linguistic) services will likely be acting as an employment business as they contract with linguists and pay them for work that is carried out.

You can read the EAS guidance here.

You can find more guidance for Employment Businesses here.

The ATC’s updated Employment Business & Relationships Guide has been updated with the latest information, focusing on assessing your company’s situation, and identifying and managing risks around employment relationships.
