There is a difference between hiring an employee vs. hiring an independent contractor (1099).

The IRS says there are three basic categories of factors that are relevant to determining a worker's classification:

  • Behavioral control (whether there's a right to direct or control how the worker does the work),
  • Financial control (whether there's a right to direct or control the business part of the work), and
  • Relationship of the parties (how the business and worker perceive the relationship).

For more information about additional types of employees, refer to the IRS website.

Still not sure? The IRS has several scenarios you can review to make sure you are in compliance with whatever worker classification you choose!
