Managing the Bottom Line: Pros and Cons of Independent Contractors vs Full-Time Employees 

Small Business Development Center

In this economy, many businesses are being forced to cut back on full-time staffers by hiring contractors to do the same work instead -minus the expensive benefits. As a result, it can often be difficult to tell employees and contractors apart. But there are significant differences, both in terms of workers' personal bottom lines and in the eyes of the IRS. Join this webinar to better understand the differences between a 1099 and W-2 employee, the advantages and disadvantages of each, and consequences of classifying incorrectly.
