Do you need a solution to safely engage self-identified IT contractors?
In addition to our core IT staffing and consulting solutions, we offer comprehensive payrolling, independent contractor engagement and supplier management solutions that help clients reduce costs and mitigate risks associated with engaging self-identified W2 workers, 1099 independent contractors and Corp-to-Corp contractors.
Federal and state agencies have significantly increased the number of audits and lawsuits in an effort to detect and penalize worker misclassification. When companies self-identify contractors, even through referrals or previous relationships, it is very important that the proper measures are taken to mitigate worker misclassification and co-employment liability risks. The consequences can include back tax assessments, fines, penalties, retroactive benefit payments and litigation costs.
