Are You Employing An “Employee” Or An “Independent Contractor”?

In today’s work environment, it is not uncommon for there to be a multitude of different employment contracts in a single company. Twenty years ago, you had either part-time or full-time employees, occasionally you would bring in the odd outside contractor. Nowadays, it’s very common to have some employees on flex-time arrangements, some people on long-term independent contracts, while others have short-term project based contracts.

The reality is, it’s hard as an employer to manage employees with different work relationships. It’s even harder to identify who is and isn’t an employee. Even the law is a little confusing.

Even more, find out why the distinction is important, specifically how the tax considerations, benefit options, and termination rights can affect your business.

Irvin Schein, Partner at Minden Gross, will instruct you on tests for making the determination between an employee and independent contractor that you can utilize today!
