LABELS MATTER: WHAT KIND OF WORKER ARE YOU, REALLY?

LABELS MATTER: WHAT KIND OF WORKER ARE YOU, REALLY?

from Massage Magazine:

Last year I was offering workshops at a day spa, and I had a meeting with the spa manager. We got to talking about her massage therapists, and I learned that she required them all to wear the same color, but she called them subcontractors. I felt I should say something ….

Before I became a massage therapist in 1994, I was a construction worker for 15 years. On a construction site, subcontractors operated under their own rules. Plumbers, for example, couldn’t be told how to do their work by the general contractor.

I have always felt the way massage therapists work is usually more of an employee situation than subcontracting. Over the years I searched the internet to validate my hunch, but never found anything authoritative.

I recently researched the subcontractor topic again. I was surprised to discover a page that clears up the difference between a subcontractor and an employee,and why it matters. I hope you visit this IRS site to learn for yourself.
