Navigator IC: Make the Call with Confidence: Employee or Independent Contractor?

Navigator IC

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.
