Independent contractors (1099’s) oftentimes play a vital role in a company’s operations, but also carry unintended risks and consequences. Our Workforce Management team can efficiently minimize these risks while allowing you to engage the services of 1099’s through our 1099 Compliance services.
Why Companies Use 1099’s?
Companies worry about independent contractor compliance because misclassification can equate to tax consequences, penalties, back wages and attorney fees. Utilizing W-2 workers in place of 1099’s can be expensive (up to 40% in additional costs), encouraging some companies to misclassify workers in hopes of avoiding immediate cost increases. The Department of Labor (DOL) and State Agencies aggressively protect workers, putting employers at an increased risk.
