Chapter 10: Before you get anyone new involved

Rosie Burbidge


This chapter introduces European employment law and its associated legal issues. When is an employee actually a contractor (and vice versa), this chapter gives you some handy pointers to enable you to tell the difference. It covers gender pay, holiday allowances, minimum pay and termination provisions. It also considers the intellectual property position as far as the creations of employees are concerned both in terms of creative works such as copyright and designs law and the associated moral rights. More specifically as far as the fashion industry is concerned, it looks at the use of interns and the various ethical codes for models. The chapter also looks at the important question of social media both in terms of employees who are responsible for a brand’s social media and the extent to which, if any, it is possible to monitor and control and employee’s use of social media.
