Hire employees or subcontract needed work to others?  Which option is best?

Well, like we often say at SCORE, “It depends….”  For instance:

  • Do you know hiring a contract worker receiving an IRS Form 1099 for federal income tax reporting does not automatically exclude that person from Workers Compensation coverage?   

  • Further, you could be responsible for Workers Compensation costs even though you hire a subcontractor?  How will unexpected operational costs impact your company’s profit potential?

  • What are the “pros and cons” of using subcontractors or employees?  Each has advantages and disadvantages - this webinar will help you sort out the choices and identify the best for your business situation.

  • Can a firm utilize independent contractors and still have W2 Employees?

  • And what about the issues of control, meeting budget and completion schedules?

  • Just what are the guidelines for considering use of subcontractors v. employed staffing and where can you get clear information to help you make an informed decision?
