Uber Ruling: 3 Things Companies That Employ 1099 Contractors Need To Know

February 18, 2016

#1: Businesses Utilizing Contractors For Low/Middle Skilled Positions Are Exposing Themselves To An Unusual Level Of Risk

If you hire an on-demand, 1099-form contractor for a low-skill job, you are obliged to cover any legal and/or medical expenses related injuries in the workplace. Companies expose themselves to more financial liability, including back pay of IRS taxes and benefits, for misclassified contractors. The IRS has a strict 20 item checklist to designate who can be considered a contractor and who cannot.

#2: Businesses Now Share Legal And Civil Responsibility With Third-Party Labor Contractors

Companies that use more than 5 1099 contractors from a workforce service (third party or otherwise) now share liability for any legal or civil action taken against said workforce service providers. [CA Assembly Bill 1897]

#3: If You Are Looking To Safely Fill Temporary, Seasonal Or Short Term Positions, Call BlueCrew.
