New government measures on bogus self-employment

04 April 2014

New tax and insurance measures to deal with bogus self-employment are due to come into force on Sunday 6 April.

Although Unite the union welcomes moves to tackle bogus self-employment (see below for details), Unite is extremely concerned that employers are attempting to circumvent the new tax regulations.


Unite has set-up a special ‘hotline’ as around 1200 victims and families receive letters from the Information Commissioner’s Office (ICO) telling them they were blacklisted through a conspiracy involving 44 construction companies spanning decades.

CSCS and affiliated card schemes are used by employers to check competence of those working on site. For card holding workers, these cards are proof that they have been trained in and are competent in particular jobs and skills. As well as an identification card, they are a passport to work. Many sites have "no card, no access" policies. More details can be found on the website


 The card proves your identity, qualified status and occupation when working on-site. It is affiliated to the Construction Skills Certification Scheme (CSCS) and the ECS card is the card relevant to the eectrotechnical industry. website


Run by Unite the union to promote health & safety awareness and best practise in the electrical contracting and construction industry.
