Been through this scenario a few times. Nothiong to do with an NDS everything to do with your contract with both the 'employee' and with your client.

Best solution is to have a clause in your contract with the client that they will not directly employ any sub-contractor of yours for a 'suitable period' following their employment by you - and have similar clause in your 'employee's' contract.

My understanding (from a while ago, in the UK) is that the clause in the employee's contract is worthless as it isn't upholdable - but it will show your intentions.

You will need to consult a lawyer to make sure wordings are correct, though.

My favourite version was a company whose contract simply stated that the client agreed to pay us 40% of any payments they made to ex-employees of ours directly, for a period of 12 months.

All of these things are get-aroundable (contractors set up companies who contract to your client and then employ them, for example) but they will generally stop the contractor who spends a lot of time on site just jumping ship, carrying on with their work directly for the client,m who saves money by paying directly.
