Employment Legal Questions and Answers

Independent Contractor Agreement

California

Asked on Jun 30, 2022

How to make a contract to keep IC status ? We are getting audited by SF. Thank you!!

I just changed to independent contractor last year after all my dental friends advised me to do so. Now the office I work at is being audited so I’m wondering what I need to do in order to keep the IC? Thank you !

Gregory B.

Answered Jul 12, 2022

In general, contract terms can make someone an employee, but cannot ensure independent contractor status. Essentially, the contract can set out IC terms, but if those terms are not followed in practice, the contract itself can't fix that. Under California AB, there is an exemption for dentists from the strict "ABC" test, but dentists will still need to meet a number of other requirements that are often, in practice, difficult to meet. For example, they would have to be "open to the public" and actually performing the same of similar services for others - so working for a single dental office typically will not pass the test!

Asked on Aug 11, 2021

Do salary employees pay for time off if office is closed?

My daughter is currently working for a Chiropractic Office in Jacksonville. She is still within her 90 days, she was hired as a salaried employee, if she works extra the pay is the same. However, due to an upcoming holiday, she was discussing her time off with another employee and how they would have several days off to equate to a long weekend. She was told that while they are closed that Friday if she wants to get paid she will have to use her accrued PTO or her pay will be deducted and she was told not to discuss pay, hours, or any such thing with her fellow employees to go straight to HR. From HR she was then told that they do not offer sick days so they must use their PTO for sick days and that it cannot be used for days off which does not make any sense to what was said before. So for days they are not open she is going to be getting money deducted even though it is beyond her control. She is 23, working her first real job and maybe I am wrong but something does not seem right. Is there anything wrong or am I just being a worried mother.

Forest H.

Answered Aug 23, 2021

There is a lot going on here. A couple of high points: 1) It is against federal labor law to prohibit employees from discussing their salary. 2) Salaried employees can be required to use PTO but their pay cannot be reduced to cover holidays if they don't have any PTO available. 3) 90 days is irrelevant, many employers will have a "probationary" period but that does not affect what laws apply to the employee.

Physician Employment Agreement

Connecticut

Asked on May 27, 2023

Physician employment agreement accounting treatment?

I am a physician who has been offered an employment agreement with a healthcare provider. I am looking to understand the accounting treatment of this agreement. I am interested in ensuring that the agreement is in compliance with all applicable accounting regulations and that I am properly compensated for my services.

Thomas L.

Answered Jun 23, 2023

There are a number of issues in such agreements. You are probably an employee rather than a contractor of the provider.

Independent Contractor Agreement

Texas

Asked on Mar 29, 2021

What is the difference between an independent contractor agreement and consulting agreement?

I am looking to hire someone to help my startup and am not sure which agreement I should use.

Forest H.

Answered Mar 29, 2021

While the basic structure and framework of a consulting agreement and an independent contractor agreement are very similar, the primary difference is in what services the consultant provides. In a consulting agreement, the consultant is providing their advice for a fee. The guidance will be in the field of their expertise and, usually, includes evaluating an aspect of your business and making suggestions regarding what to do next. An independent contractor, on the other hand, will actually perform the work. The difference is not always a bright line and will vary depending on the circumstances. In some cases, a service provider will evaluate, recommend, and then perform. In that case, they are acting as a consultant first and then an independent contractor. It is also important to properly consider the differences between an independent contractor and an employee.

Employment Agreement

Colorado

Asked on Jan 28, 2022

Fired

I'm a independent contractor as a caregiver and I was fired for no reason

Melissa L.

Answered Feb 18, 2022

Depending on your State's employment laws, usually an employee is hired as an employee at will meaning that employee can be fired or terminated at any time for no reason as long the reason is not illegal/discrinatory. If you do not have a written employment contract, the default is usually employee at will. Sorry to hear about your loss of job.
