hiring subcontractors

Companies

hiring remote workers

Any business hiring a 1099 independent contractor must verify the worker or company is legitimately operating under California’s new laws.

If your 1099 workers perform similar tasks to your employees, or if you are uncertain your 1099 workers have current business entity filings, licensing, and other elements as outlined in AB-5, get the peace of mind of a Verify1099 report. With our comprehensive reports and monthly alerts, you can be secure that you will be prepared to defend your workers’ classification against a government audit or inquiry.

With recent changes under California law, there are stricter requirements making it harder to hire 1099 contractors without the proper verification.

The Power of Information to Make Better Decisions

Construction Business Owners are at High Risk

California EDD is looking for 1099 contractors whom they feel should now be classified as W-2 workers.  Since AB-5 and the Gig Work law went into effect, businesses who work with outside contractors are particularly vulnerable. Use our tool to make the right decision BEFORE California EDD comes knocking.

Not Every 1099 Needs to Be Reclassified

Throughout California, business owners are throwing their hands up and reclassifying all their workers. This is not always smart, necessary, or advantageous to your workers. STOP. Use our tool and make an informed decision as to the status of your 1099 workers and their legitimacy in that classification.
