Per diem classification for traveling nurse, healthcare, and IT staffing firms
Correctly classifying workers as independent contractors is being scrutinized more today than at any time throughout our country’s history. While the prior administration looked to ease the burden of employers proving valid independent contractor relationships at the federal level, our current administration appears to be more in line with states that have followed the more stringent ABC Test (most prominently, California).
With the overwhelming high demand and minimal supply of these high-level professionals, the consultants carry much more leverage in deciding how they prefer to be classified (W-2 vs. independent contractor).
