Recorded Webinar Now available – Independent Contractor Vs. Employee Status What EVERYONE Needs to Know and Understand!

The live webinar was a great success with therapists from 19 states participating.  In case you missed it, you can hear the entire webinar (including all the Q/A) and get the PowerPoint and separate worksheet- Ten Steps to Become an Independent Contractor. $85 will get you everything plus access to the webinar 24/7/365.

Whether you are a practice owner who hires therapists, a therapist who is hired by a private practice, a home care agency, or hospital, or a therapist who holds themselves out to the public as an independent contractor, understanding what these classifications really mean is vital and has important ramifications for both parties.  It is time to take this issue out of the gray matter and separate fact from fiction.

This issue will be presented in detail from all perspectives as far as therapists are concerned, and from the vantage point of the Internal Revenue Service and the Labor Department, regardless of what state you live in.

Learning Objectives:

1) Understand the specific criteria used to determine whether a therapist should be deemed an employee or an independent contractor

2) Understand the rule of “Substance over Form “application – why the substance of what a therapist does is far more important than the contract they sign!

3) Find out the specifics of what you can do to protect yourself if:

a. you want to classify a therapist as an IC

b. you want to classify some therapists as employees and some as ICs

4) Find out how to “clean” up your worker classifications before an audit

5) Find out what to do if you think you are being misclassified

Upon request, you will receive a certificate of participation.   Webinar includes a handout and copy of the PowerPoint.
