An employer is a person who makes a payment to somebody who has been hired to carry out work either in an employment relationship or for individual assignments. A private employer in this brochure means a person who hires an employee as a private individual.
There are two exceptions that apply to this:
- You are not an employer if the person you hire carries out the assignment as a part of their business.
- You are also not an employer if the salary or the fee is less than specific minimum levels.
