Employing Consultants in Multiple States: A Practical Approach to Balancing Tax Compliance Costs & Risks
Thursday, June 03, 2021
Sponsored by UHY. Even before the great geographic dispersion of internal employees and consultants triggered by the pandemic, IT and engineering staffing firms have commonly had a large percentage of their workforces working in multiple states. While a few firms have been rigorously compliant, many others have placed consultants in states without giving a thought to their state and local tax obligations. Taking a pragmatic approach, the tax experts at UHY with deep staffing firm experience offer recommendations on how to reasonably balance the cost of multi-state compliance and the risks.

"Who Is Your Employee?" Independent Contractor Classification for IT Staffing Firms
Tuesday, July 20, 2021
For some time now, classifying workers as independent contractors has been under attack by many states. While the prior administration looked to ease the burden of employers proving valid independent contractor relationships at the federal level, the new administration appears to be more in line with states that have followed the more stringent ABC Test (most prominently, California). Due to the high demand and low-supply of high-level IT professionals, consultants have a lot of leverage in dictating how they prefer to be classified (W-2 vs. independent contractor). In this webinar, we will touch on some of the many different independent contractor classification tests employers face both at the federal and state levels, provide insight on how to navigate these tests, and potential ramifications for violations.

Barb will share specific solutions for: 1) No Shows 2) No Starts/Offer Reject 3) Fall-Offs 4) Counteroffers 5) Candidates who extend their contract
“Avoiding the Pitfalls: Common Compliance Mistakes IT Staffing Companies Often Make”
Thursday, September 16, 2021
It’s always best to prevent a problem before it becomes a problem, yet many IT Staffing companies do just the opposite. Sitting tight until your company faces a regulatory audit before actually taking the time to review and improve your compliance policies and procedures could prove to be problematic. Compliance is something that applies to the IT Staffing Industry, no matter what their size is. While many IT Staffing Firms should have some sort of compliance strategy mapped out, not many know how to integrate these processes and strategies to ensure profitability & operational efficiency. Though compliance planning requires a lot of time and energy to address, if not properly addressed, these compliance mistakes can cost millions of dollars. Despite their best efforts, companies frequently make the same mistakes when it comes to a thorough and effective compliance strategy. Our team of IT Staffing veterans will walk through the common mistakes they have seen and how they addressed these to ensure complete compliance.
