Employee or Independent Contractor?
February 25, 2021 at
Landscapers, golf courses and turf professionals often rely on seasonal workers to help get the job done. By nature, much of this work is part-time or contract-based. But when issues arise, courts often look past what you call a worker and look at the true nature of the employment relationship. That could leave employers on the hook for significant unplanned costs around severance and termination pay. Join Turf & Rec as we dive into the importance, and ease, of using written employment agreements for all your hires.
