Fines, penalties, back taxes, unhappy employees, weakened IP protection, legal disputes, and reputational damage – these are just a few of the potential complications that you’ll have to face if you misclassify employees on your global team.

In this one-hour webinar on contractor management, three expert panelists discuss best practices for the contractors on your team, including what to include in a contract, who should own the contract, contractor status reviews, and more.

What is misclassification of contractors?

Misclassification occurs when companies incorrectly classify an employee as a contractor. What exactly constitutes the difference between a contractor and an employee varies by country, which makes global contractor management tricky.

To ensure compliance, companies must understand the different rules in different countries and ensure that each contract worker is registered correctly wherever they are. This is an ongoing exercise, as labor laws can change quickly and often.

Efficient contractor management is a combination of many factors: communication, documentation, advice, on-time payments, and knowing when to convert a contractor to a full time employee. It’s a big task, but it also has a great reward: building a strong contracting team to grow internationally.
