Employee vs Independent Contractors and Implications to Employers

In this video, Alexandra Tratnik speaks with human resource professionals about Employee vs Independent Contractors and Implications to Employers and other related employment law issues.

Alexandra Tratnik is an employment lawyer and commercial litigator with the Toronto Law Firm of Devry Smith Frank LLP.

There is a growing trend in employers hiring individuals as contractors versus employees to perform services. This trend is primarily due to a number of factors creating greater flexibility, reducing overall cost and often a greater specialization that contractors may be able to bring to the employer.

The distinction between independent contractors and employee relationships can be difficult to determine and the line is becoming more and more blurred. This distinction has a number of implications for employers and independent contractors.

Employees for example have certain rights that are not available to contractors. Should the CRA classify a independent contractor as a employee, that could result in additional costs to both the contractor and employer.

Watch the video to learn more about these areas.
