George to Differentiate Contractor, Consultant or Employee in WBDC Workshop
Working independently can be a rewarding way to capitalize on skills, build relationships and generate revenue. But did you know that ‘independent contractor’ is a legal status and you must meet certain requirements to qualify?
On the flip side, hiring an independent contractor can be an effective way to accomplish your short-term goals. However, proper classification of workers – as independent contractors or employees – can be complex because the status depends on such factors as behavioral and financial controls and the relationship of the parties.
If you are self-employed, considering self-employment as an independent contractor, or are using or considering hiring independent contractors to expand your business, this 2 ½ hour, two session workshop will provide valuable insight.
