WORKER CLASSIFICATION BEST PRACTICES: Accurate worker classification, in our world, is a must. With rapid growth of the independent workforce we’ve seen a dramatic increase in scrutiny by the IRS and state labor agencies to ensure workers are appropriately classified. Misclassifying workers as independent contractors presents a huge risk for any enterprise. PayReel will help ensure that all your freelance contractors are properly classified by vetting the work, the worker’s role, evaluating the risk and making a classification decision.
The IRS has very strict guidelines that define true business-to-business relationships and payroll compliance. These guidelines are meant to prevent firms from misclassifying would-be employees and thereby avoid, either knowingly or unknowingly, a bounty of state and federal taxes.
Key things to require when working with an IC
- Your contractor has an established business entity, with a business name and EIN to which invoice payment is made
- Your contractor provides services to other businesses outside your firm
- Your IC provides certificates of insurance, including at the least, coverage for general liability insurance and workers’ comp insurance
- You have a signed per project Agreement for Services between your company and the contractor
- In the context of hiring independent contractors and contingent workforce regulations, PayReel pays close attention to all employer obligations at the federal, state and local levels, including wage & hour rules, per diem, ACA tracking, and sick leave mandates.
