Why Join UASA's Independent Professionals?

Working as a freelancer, consultant or independent contractor comes with many advantages and flexibilities, the fact that independent professionals do not fall into the traditional role of full-time employees working for a single employer under a contract of employment of indefinite length means that they are exposed to possible exploitation or unfair practices. 

UASA’s Independent Professional Sector is uniquely positioned to assist Independent Professionals, Freelancers, Contractors and other multi-employer individuals with their contracts of employment
