Not sure this is the right place to ask this question but I hope some of you may know the answer to this, or be able to point me in the right direction for where to look for the information.

I am trying to work out what rights a self employed person has when they do work for a client.

I know that the terms of business will dictate this but I was wondering what statutory rights might exist - for example, an employee can get Statutory Maternity Pay, where as someone self employed cannot. Someone self employed can apply for Maternity Allowance.

MA as you say, also SSP (statutory sick pay)
other than that, I don't know.

you'll always be able to use the nhs, so i guess you can count healthcare! grin

I didn't think someone self employed could get SSP. Thanks for mentioning it though, as that did then mean that I searched for info about that smile and found Employment and Support Allowance which someone self employed can claim. I think that would be NI Contribution Based, not sure how you go about calculating what it would be though.
