-Employee vs. Independent Contractor status
-10 Habits of Highly Effective Employees (or ICs!)
Welcome back to the MBA Working Girl Podcast-Where Business Theory and the Real World Collide! I'm your host, Laura Adams.
MBA Essential Tip:
In the show I interchange the terms Independent Contractor and Independent Subcontractor. Just to clarify, here are the definitions of the two.
*A Independent Subcontractor is an individual or business that signs a contract to perform part or all of the obligations of another's contract.
*An Independent Contractor is an individual or business that provides goods or services to another entity under terms specified in a contract.
Employers are liable for the torts (civil wrongs for which remedies may be obtained) of their employees, as long as the employee is acting within the scope of employment. However, employers are generally not liable for torts committed by the Independent Contractors they hire. When hiring an IC, the employer is bargaining only for their work results. When hiring an employee, the employer has the right to control the conduct of the employee.
"By the work one knows the workmen" -Jean De La Fontaine (1621-1695)
This show continues the discussion about U.S. Labor Law - specifically outlining the major differences between Employee vs. Independent Contractor status.
I'm not an attorney, but hope to enable you to recognize the differences more clearly.
