Learn the legal differences and financial aspects involved in determining someone as an employee or an independent contractor. This training will discuss in detail the Do's and Don'ts in hiring an employee versus an independent contractor.

Why Should You Attend:

Navigating the regulatory and financial aspects of determining whether someone should be an employee or an independent contractor can be confusing. There are many legal and financial aspects to consider when making this determination. Hiring an independent contractor offers employers many advantages. Unlike for traditional employees, employers do not pay taxes on independent contractors’ wages, and are not expected to provide benefits. Employers often save 30 to 40 percent on labor costs by using independent contractors. In addition, as independent contractors are generally hired for a specific period or project, employers have no obligation to rehire them after each contract period or project is complete.

However, employers should be cautious when classifying individuals as independent contractors. Misclassifying an employee as an independent contractor can have serious financial and legal consequences.

In this 90-minute webinar session, we will discuss how to navigate the regulatory and financial aspects between employment and independent contractor classification. Site specific scenarios will be discussed and questions and answers and will be addressed.
