Are you running your business as an independent contractor within a clinic or is the clinic running it for you? You might be surprised to discover that what think is an independent contractor relationship is actually an employment relationship, or vice versa.
The RMT industry has lacked structure when it comes to this very important piece of your business. Consulting with a lawyer to create or review an independent contractor agreement is the first step in ensuring that all parties are protected and functioning within the legal parameters of each type of relationship.
This webinar will:
Unpack and simplify the definitions of employee, independent contractor, and dependent contractor
Review the potential consequences of misclassifying employees or independent contractors
Look at trends in recent cases
Educate you on the importance of having clear agreements to help define the legal relationship
Provide tips and best practices for drafting an independent contractor agreement
The information shard in this webinar is for Canadian RMTs.
