How To Avoid Unemployment/Workers’ Compensation Claims From Independent Contractors

Marsh Law

The unemployment compensation and Workers’ compensation lawyers at Marsh Law recognize that independent contractors make up a huge portion of the workforce these days, and with good reason. An independent contractor relationship can often benefit both the business and the contractors themselves. While independent contractors are given relative freedom over managing their own schedules, businesses get to avoid the large taxes, expenses, and liabilities associated with hiring actual employees. However, in the unfortunate event that a Workers’ compensation or unemployment claim is brought forward by an independent contractor, this relationship can prove to be just as complicated as it is beneficial.
