Employment status

5. Self-employed and contractor

A person is self-employed if they run their business for themselves and take responsibility for its success or failure.

Self-employed workers aren’t paid through PAYE, and they don’t have the employment rights and responsibilities of employees .

Someone can be both employed and self-employed at the same time, eg if they work for an employer during the day and run their own business in the evenings.

Employment rights

Employment law doesn’t cover self-employed people in most cases because they are their own boss.

However, if a person is self-employed:

  • they still have protection for their health and safety and, in some cases, protection against discrimination
  • their rights and responsibilities are set out by the terms of the contract they have with their client

Working out if someone is self-employed

HM Revenue and Customs (HMRC ) may regard someone as self-employed for tax purposes even if they have a different status in employment law.

Employers should check if a worker is self-employed in:

  • tax law – whether they’re exempt from PAYE
  • employment law – whether they have an employee’s rights

Individuals and their employers may have to pay unpaid tax and penalties, or lose entitlement to benefits, if their employment status is wrong.

Checking if they’re exempt from PAYE

Someone is probably self-employed and shouldn’t be paid through PAYE if most of the following are true:

  • they’re in business for themselves, are responsible for the success or failure of their business and can make a loss or a profit
  • they can decide what work they do and when, where or how to do it
  • they can hire someone else to do the work
  • they’re responsible for fixing any unsatisfactory work in their own time
  • their employer agrees a fixed price for their work – it doesn’t depend on how long the job takes to finish
  • they use their own money to buy business assets, cover running costs, and provide tools and equipment for their work
  • they can work for more than one client

If someone’s employment status for PAYE still isn’t clear, you can use HMRC ’s Employment Status Indicator or call HMRC .

Checking their employment rights

Someone is probably self-employed and doesn’t have the rights of an employee if they’re exempt from PAYE and most of the following are also true:

  • they put in bids or give quotes to get work
  • they’re not under direct supervision when working
  • they submit invoices for the work they’ve done
  • they’re responsible for paying their own National Insurance and tax
  • they don’t get holiday or sick pay when they’re not working
  • they operate under a contract (sometimes known as a ‘contract for services’ or ‘consultancy agreement’) that uses terms like ‘self-employed’, ‘consultant’ or an ‘independent contractor’

Contractors

A contractor can be:

  • self-employed
  • a worker or an employee if they work for a client and are employed by an agency

There’s a special scheme for self-employed contractors and sub-contractors working in the construction industry called the Construction Industry Scheme (CIS ).

If someone becomes self-employed

A worker must tell HMRC if they become self-employed.

About Us

In 1920, the first public rehabilitation program providing training, prosthetics, and placement services for persons with disabilities began with the passing of the Smith-Fess Act.

Since that time, there have been many laws enacted to enhance the lives of persons with disabilities. On July 26, 1990, President George H. W. Bush signed the Americans with Disabilities Act (ADA) into law.

The ADA has made a tremendous impact on American life and culture and is an important civil rights act designed to ensure that people with disabilities enjoy the same freedoms as everyone else. Additionally, the 1992 Amendments to the Rehabilitation Act of 1973 ensure consumer choice in career opportunities.

The latest amendments are incorporated in Public Law 113-108, enacted on July 22, 2014, as Title IV of the Workforce Innovation and Opportunity Act (WIOA). WIOA is designed to give job seekers easier access to employment, education, training, and support services needed to succeed in the labor market, and to match employers with the skilled workers they need to compete in the global economy.

Mission Statement

To help people with disabilities find and maintain employment and enhance their independence.

Vision

To become the first place people with disabilities turn when seeking employment and a top resource for employers in need of qualified employees.

Organizational Structure

The Division has 900 employees with staff in a Tallahassee headquarters office, six area offices, and 89 field locations where VR customers can get services across the state.

The program is administered through the Office of the Director and four Bureaus: the Bureau of Field Services, the Bureau of Operations and Support, the Bureau of Planning and Performance, and the Bureau of Vendor and Contracted Services.

Character Animator – Career Profile

Did You Know. Full Sail University offers online degree programs in computer animation, game art, and game design? Learn more about Full Sail University’s online programs.

What does a Character Animator do? Where does a Character Animator work? ACR takes a look:

About Character Animators

Character animators create and design characters using animation software, 3D modeling, 2D animations, and even puppetry. These creative professionals develop characters that use movement to tell a story, whether its for film, television, video games or mobile applications.

Character Animator Jobs

Character animators create then manipulate animated characters to interact in digital environments by using computer software such as MotionBuilder 3D, Flash Professional, LightWave, Maya and other programs. They also draw storyboards, create models, and design environments. Character animators work with sound engineers to make sure movements are in harmony with sound, and they work with clients to help pitch ideas and develop concepts.

Character animators work in film and video production studios, advertising agencies, public relations firms, software publishers, computer systems design firms, graphic design firms, game design firms, web design firms, and at colleges and universities.

According to the Bureau of Labor Statistics, a hefty 57 percent of animators were self-employed in 2012. This is the most recent figure for self-employed animators. These professionals, not just the self-employed, often work from home. Others work at film, animation or video game production studios, cartoon networks, advertising agencies, web design firms, graphic design firms, and mobile technology companies. Some work in office settings.

Schools to Consider:

Character Animator Salaries

The Bureau of Labor Statistics combines multimedia artists and animators into one career group. According to the Bureau, the current median annual wage for multimedia artists and animators is $61,370 per year. The lowest paid multimedia artists and animators earned less than $34,860. The highest paid earned $113,470 per year. At $72,680, multimedia artists and animators working in the motion picture and video industries earn the highest median annual wage of the top five industries for this profession.

Please note that salaries for multimedia artist and animators may vary by experience, type and size of company, and even geographic location. For example, Washington-based multimedia artists and animators average $76,900 per year—the nation’s second highest average salary for this profession, while Wisconsin-based artists average $48,080—one of the lowest.

The top five highest paying states for multimedia artists and animators are California ($88,150 per year), Washington State ($76,900), District of Columbia ($76,110), New York ($72,530), and New Mexico ($70,310).

Becoming a Character Animator

Competition in the animation industry is intense, so standards are high. This means, many employers will accept no less than a 4-year degree. Top degree options include a Bachelor of Art (BA), Bachelor of Science (BS) or a Bachelor of Fine Art (BFA) in Animation, Animation Digital Arts, Media Arts Animation, Computer Animation, Computer Graphics, Film with an Animation focus, Media Arts Science, Fine Art, and even Computer Science (with an Emphasis in Animation). You can expect to take courses such as Drawing, 2-D Animation Production, 3-D Animation Production, and Stop Motion. Character animators should also study geometry and anatomy to study how animals and humans move in order to make character movements more realistic.

In addition to a 4-year degree, many employers look for at least 2 years’ experience in the industry, and advanced technology skills. Entry-level positions may require only a degree and experience through an internship or other support position. Senior level positions may require at least 5-7 years’ professional experience in the industry and possibly an advanced degree. In fact, more schools than ever before now offer Master of Fine Arts (MFA) degrees in Animation, Animation Visual Effects, Animation Digital Arts, and more. Some schools in the U.S. (and many in Europe and Asia) even offer PhD programs in Digital Arts Animation, Multimedia Animation, Computer Science with an Animation Emphasis and more

Job Trends for Character Animators

Employment for this group is expected to grow six percent for the 2012-2022 decade. Projected employment growth for animators and multimedia artists will be the result of increased demand for animation and more realistic visual effects in video games, films, and television. However, job growth may be slowed by companies hiring artists and animators who work overseas for lower wages. The increasing demand for computer graphics for mobile devices may counter slow growth by creating more job opportunities in the massive mobile industry.

Despite slow job growth, competition for job opportunities in animation will remain strong. The Bureau says, “Opportunities should be best for those who have a wide range of skills or who specialize in a highly specific type of animation or effect.” Still, as of January 2014, the U.S. was home to an impressive population of 68,900 multimedia artists and animators, making it the third largest career field in the world of Art and Design. At 259,500, graphic designers represent the largest group.

Job opportunities for animators and multimedia artists can be found all over the U.S. However, five states have the highest employment levels beginning with California (the highest), followed by New York, Washington, Texas, and Illinois.

Awesome Animation Fact:The music video for the Dire Straits song “Money for Nothing,” was one of the first videos to make the leap into computer animation. The groundbreaking video for the 1985 hit song featured computer-animated human characters in a style still mimicked by many animators today.

What Is the Employment Outlook for Attorneys?

If you’re considering becoming a lawyer, but are afraid you won’t find a job after you earn your law degree, read on. The good news is that the employment outlook remains positive for current and future attorneys in the U.S. Individuals and businesses alike need the legal services that attorneys offer. Learn more about the employment outlook for attorneys. Schools offering Juris Doctor degrees can also be found in these popular choices.

Attorney Defined

Important Facts About Attorneys

Juris Doctor Degree

Judge, Mediator/Arbitrator, Postsecondary Teacher

Employment Outlook

The U.S. Bureau of Labor Statistics (BLS) reported that there were 603,310 attorneys in 2014 (www.bls.gov ). In 2014, the BLS predicted that there would be 822,500 attorneys by the year 2024, resulting in an occupational growth of six percent, which is as fast as average when compared to other occupations. However, you can expect to face considerable competition for positions due to the large number of law school graduates entering the field every year. The trend toward using paralegals to handle more common tasks may have a negative impact on the employment outlook during this period. Population growth may increase the demand for legal transactions and disputes.

The greatest employment growth for attorneys is likely to be among salaried staff attorneys in large metropolitan businesses and various sectors of government, according to the BLS. Self-employed attorneys will enjoy growth at a slower pace. Attorneys looking to start their own business might benefit from opening an office in small towns, away from more competitive, larger law firms.

Salary Info

The BLS reported in May 2014 that the average annual salary for attorneys was $133,470. The top ten percent of attorneys earned $187,199 or more per year, while the bottom ten percent earned $55,400 or less per year. Attorneys working for the industrial manufacturing industry had among the highest average annual incomes at $209,730 per year.

Salaries vary greatly and depend on many factors, such as education, experience, geographic location and employer. Attorneys who make partner in a law firm may earn more than attorneys with their own private firm. Salaried attorneys may benefit from health, life and retirement plans. Independent attorneys must arrange for these benefits on their own.

Lawyers and attorneys will call on paralegals for help when it comes to researching new topics and finding information that will help their clients. Paralegals occasionally meet with clients and record meetings between clients and their lawyers. As law offices keep growing, those lawyers need law office receptionists. law office assistants and research assistants.

Paralegal Education Requirements

Paralegals are usually required to have a minimum of an associate’s degree or equivalent vocational training. More than 40 percent of all paralegals have at least a bachelor’s degree. Many vocational programs across the country offer training for high school students that let them work as paralegals after graduation, and adult students can attend similar programs at vocational schools and community colleges.
