Hiring Contractors vs Employees for Private Practices

Today on the Brand Your Practice Podcast, we’re going to tackle a subject that is surging among group practice owners, especially in light of the IRS looking to hire 87,000 new agents to go tax collecting.

The topic is Contractors vs. Employees. What’s the difference and how can we make the right decision for our practice when we’re looking to hire? Because there are risks that we need to address.

And to help me do that is Daniel Mayer, a Maryland-based attorney and the principal attorney of Mayer Law, which specializes in working with and representing mental health practitioners and mental health practices.

We discuss:

  • The difference between a 1099 Contractor and a W2 Employee
  • The financial risk for a practice owner if they misclassify a contractor
  • How to use the IRS Common Law Test to determine if your contractor should be classified as an employee
