Availability: In Stock
Given the growing trend of hiring contract employees, especially through staffing agencies, a new "law for contractors" is developing. This comprehensive publication synthesizes the law and recent trends, in order for workplaces to deal with the legal issues that arise, for example: hiring contractors, payroll issues, administering the contractor/employer relationship, performance management, outsourcing contractors, hiring a third party administrator; dismissal issues; tax issues; dealing with government bodies and dealing with tribunals. This book seeks to aid those who are affected by the independent contractor relationship: payers, independent contractors, lawyers, human resources professionals and other stakeholders or advisors dealing with issues relating to independent contractor relationships, such as recruitment professionals. Included with this book is a CD-ROM which includes a Sample Template for an Independent Contractor Agreement and a Checklist on Creating a True Independent Contractor Relationship.
