Course Description

It is critical for business owners to correctly determine whether the individuals providing services are employees or independent contractors before rendering payment for services. Misclassifying workers as independent contractors adversely affects employees because the employers share of taxes is not paid and the employees share is not withheld.

Learning Objectives

  • What factors are used to make the determination.

  • What to do if you are unsure.

  • Reporting requirements for payments to independent contractors.
