Self-employment within the hair and beauty industry
What we want
- A level playing field for employers and the self-employed.
What have we achieved?
- Produced clear-cut guidance on the advantages and disadvantages of chair renting/treatment room renting and what salon owners can and can’t do to stay within the law.
Self-employed: 48% (76,000) of people working in hairdressing and barbering and 57% (48,000) of people working in beauty are self employed
What are we doing?
- Contributing to the government review of the ‘gig economy’ and modern working practices.
- Encouraging the government to take a joined-up approach to tax, VAT, licences, illegal non-EU workers to stamp out exploitations and prevent rogue employers undercutting reputable businesses.
