Openforce has curated and continues to add to our "toolkit" resources related to emerging Covid programs and challenges if you’d like to take a deeper dive. The Independent Contractor Toolkit is a comprehensive guide to the relief and options directly available to ICs. You can refer ICs directly to this resource without risk of providing direction.
The Contracting Company Toolkit is designed to help your business navigate IC-related questions raised by this emergency legislation. While there are a lot of general guides available about the new legislation, this addresses considerations specific to companies that use ICs as a significant element of their workforce. Questions covered include:
Should I list ICs as “payroll” expenses when applying for loans or loan forgiveness? What if an IC incorrectly lists me as “employer” on their own unemployment application? Will CARES Act documentation have an impact on future misclassification claims?
