That HR Podcast episode 15: Don't be afraid of IR35

Changes to tax rules governing contingent workers are coming next year – and that means HR needs to start preparing now

In this episode of That HR Podcast, People Management’s Francis Churchill speaks to Matt Fryer, group compliance director for Brookson Legal, to find out how the changes will affect employers, and what organisations should be doing to prepare.

Plus, with the new football season around the corner, reporter Maggie Baska takes a deep dive into the state of HR at Premier League clubs.
