How to Avoid the Risks of Independent Contractor Misclassification
Contractor Conversion: Going From Misclassified to Compliant
Contractor Risk Assessment For Global Employers
How do I convert my contractors to full-time employees?
Converting contractors to full-time employees helps you minimize misclassification risks wherever you build teams. There are two main ways to make the switch. The first involves setting up legal entities in every country where you oversee talent. Once an entity is established, you can legally classify your talent as employees—and offer them benefits, perks, and full-time pay. Entity establishment, however, is a long and costly process. To convert contractors to full-time employees without establishing entities, you can work with an employer of record (EOR). Your EOR partner will employ talent on your behalf so they are legally considered full-time employees. You continue to oversee their day-to-day operations while the EOR acts as an outsourced HR partner delivering pay, benefits, and ongoing back-end support.
How do I know if my contractor is compliant?
Determining whether your contractor is compliant can be a complex process. You need to research local labor laws and classification guidelines in your market, then determine whether or not your contractor fits into that definition. Some common triggers of noncompliance include offering benefits to your contractor, controlling their day-to-day schedule, or limiting them from working for other employers. The best way to find out whether your contractor is compliant is to work with an expert. Velocity Global is standing by to offer you the guidance you need to determine compliance in over 185 countries.
How do I know if my contractors are misclassified?
It can be tricky to know whether your contractors are misclassified. Every country has its own labor laws, and regulations are constantly changing. To determine if your contractors are misclassified, you’ll have to do a deep dive into the labor laws of the country where you’ve engaged your worker. Common misclassification triggers include restricting your contractor from working for other employers; directly controlling their schedules or how they do their jobs; or employing the contractor for a continuous period. To gain peace of mind that you’ve correctly classified your contractors, reach out to an employment expert like Velocity Global. We’ve helped more than 1,000 companies compliantly hire and support talent in over 185 countries, and our robust contractor classification knowledge means you can rest assured you’re playing by the rules.
