Workforce Tip of the Week, sponsored by Spectrum Employee Services: What you should know about the ‘gig workforce’

    A “gig workforce” is one made up of independent contractors and temporary positions. It’s important that these workers be correctly classified in order to avoid financial and legal burdens. An independent contractor should:

    • Complete tasks using their own equipment
    • Work for more than one entity at a time
    • Define their own business hours and schedule
    • Receive payment on a per project basis

    If a person is receiving a steady paycheck, he/she is not considered an independent contractor. Click here for more information.
