Independent Contractor or Employee? How to Get It Right Every Time

Does your business rely on freelancers, project workers and other “independent contractors” to get things done? Using contract workers has many benefits, but it can be fraught with risk: The IRS has strict rules that define who can be treated as a contractor (sometimes referred to as a “1099 employee”) and who should be considered an employee. The penalties for getting it wrong can be crippling, including having to pay back taxes along with steep fines.

This webinar will provide the clarity you need to make sure you don’t accidentally cross the line when working with freelancers, consultants, temps and other contract workers. You’ll walk away with the knowledge you need to protect yourself from a costly mistake.
