We know that when companies want to access talent internationally, they often engage people as “contractors” instead of employees if they don’t have a legal entity in that country that can act as employer. Without an entity, a company cannot register as an employer, make payroll tax payments, or provide benefits. So, companies often think that the only way to hire and pay an individual is to engage them as an independent contractor (or consultant) instead of an employee.
In this episode of “Going Global”, host Andrea Dumont, Senior Vice President of Marketing, chats with Jane Booth, Senior Vice President of Sales, about engaging contractors internationally – and the risks associated with doing so.
