Understand the Risks of Hiring, Managing Freelancers
HR departments and hiring managers already face numerous challenges with recruiting and onboarding full-time employees, but they face increasingly costly challenges when it comes to freelancer management. Freelance and contingent worker models are increasingly critical to modern enterprise growth, but leveraging typical CMS and spreadsheet-based workflows to manage all these project-based personnel, part-time staffers and independent contractors quickly becomes unwieldy and unreliable. Additionally, the criteria for classifying and paying your freelance team members may not always be clear, which can result in employee misclassification and serious legal and financial implications for your business.
Effectively managing and documenting freelance personnel is essential for business compliance, but that starts with a comprehensive evaluation of the gaps between your policies and the labor laws in your state. It’s essential that your internal HR teams be clear about various personnel classifications, such as:
- The difference between a full-time employee and an independent contractor
- The independent contractor criteria you need to classify them as such
- Your state’s penalties for a misclassified employee
Understanding the distinctions in how you employ and pay full-time personnel vs. independent contractors in your state can be the difference between a compliant organization and one facing hefty penalties for employee misclassification. So how do you know how compliant your organization is when it comes to freelancer management?
