Business and HR Advice for Contractors

Many small business owners don't have the means to hire an in-house human resources expert or operations personnel to manage the business. The owners are usually the person in charge of running every aspect of the business — including maintaining HR compliance for contractors. However, you need to carefully monitor and manage these aspects to ensure you stay compliant, especially as your business grows.

These tasks can easily become overwhelming when employees are working on different job sites or you have to determine the difference between an independent contractor and an employee. This is significant because if an independent contractor gets misclassified, then they cannot receive the benefits and protections that they are entitled to by law, such as retirement options and health insurance. These laws can sometimes be difficult to interpret and can vary based on what state your business and employees are located in.

Additionally, these employment regulations and labor laws can change every year. By not understanding the laws, keeping up with the frequent changes, or misclassifying the status of an employee or independent contractor working for you, your business could face legal action and significant fines.

Remain Compliant With Business Consumer Alliance

At BCA, we have been helping businesses thrive and remain compliant for over 25 years. As a BCA member, you'll have access to our industry experts who have decades of business and HR experience under their belt. The best part — this is entirely FREE and included with your membership.

Whether you need help determining if the individual you hired needs a 1099 or W-2 or you want to make sure your hiring contract is accurate and covers all important elements, our team of industry experts are available to help.

We can also assist with creating an employee handbook for new hires. Your handbook should cover information about your organization's history, values, and mission. Most importantly, it should clearly communicate your organizations' contractual disclaimer and at-will employment statement, standards of conduct, payment schedule, resignation and termination policies, and non-disclosure agreement. Whether you have contractors or employees working for you, they need to be aware of these kinds of policies and procedures.

Regardless of what you need help with, our industry experts' business and HR guidance will ensure you follow all requirements and stay up-to-date with important law changes, so your handbook and business remain in labor law compliance for contractors.
