SCORE and Capital One Bank have partnered to provide a workshop designed to help small businesses not only survive but thrive in the current economy. You will have an opportunity to meet one-on-one with a SCORE certified mentor and representatives from banks and lenders to discuss your unique situation and network with other small businesses who are facing similar challenges.

Employee vs. Contractor

Whether a worker is an independent contractor or an employee depends on the facts in each situation.

In this workshop, you will learn the importance of correctly classifying a worker as an employee or an independent contractor and understand the consequences of misclassification.
For federal employment tax purposes, a business must examine the relationship between the business and the worker.
