Employee or Independent Contractor?
Are you paying your people correctly? If not, the penalties add up quick! The freelancer workforce is growing three times faster than traditional workforce in the U.S. It’s appealing to companies and workers to have flexibility and earn through quick gigs and project based work. Be cautious because everyone loses when companies deliberately misclassify workers in an attempt to cut costs. It tips the scales against all of the companies who choose to play by the rules. Plus, workers end up losing out on overtime pay and benefits. Begin by asking yourself, “are my workers really in business for themselves or are they economically dependent on the company?”
