Navigator Independent Contractor


Make the Call with Confidence: Employee or Independent Contractor?

Independent contractor misclassification is perhaps the most difficult compliance issue that companies face today.  Different federal and state laws apply different tests for IC status – three, four or even six different tests may apply to a single contractor under wage-hour, unemployment, workers’ compensation, employment tax, safety and equal opportunity laws.  And with more than 40% of the U.S. workforce expected to be comprised of independent contractors within the next few years, determining whether to engage talent on a 1099 or W2 basis has become a crucial decision that needs to be made confidently.
