As an Enterprise client, we want to give you every tool you need to succeed. One of those tools is compliance services.
If your company is enrolled in Enterprise Compliance services, we’ll determine whether each freelancer you want to engage should be an independent contractor or an employee of our staffing agency. This helps protect your company from misclassification risk, which occurs when an employer classifies a worker as an independent contractor when the government thinks that person should be classified as an employee. Without compliance services, your company could be at risk of:
- Unpaid taxes
- Employee back pay
- Other legal fines
We provide classification services at the beginning of a contract. Your account team will assist with managing your onboarding workflow.
How it works
After you hire, we handle how the talent is classified. This takes about 3 business days, but can be impacted by different aspects of the engagement, like the scope of work or responsiveness of you and your freelancer.
Enrolling or opting out
Account owners can work with your account team to determine whether compliance services are right for your company. They can go over pricing and the options for additional onboarding tasks.
If your company chooses not to enroll, your company will be solely responsible for the worker classification compliance of your freelancers and the liability that that entails. Reach out to your account team or contact support to upgrade to compliance services at any time.
