While it is not PCSI’s desire or intent to exaggerate the risks associated with the traditional approach to engaging independent contractors, there are a number of very salient points that employers should be aware of before making the decision to maintain the status quo.
Did you know?
Did you know that the average severance settlement associated with cases where a contractor has been deemed by the government or courts to be dependent on the company in question can be $75,000 or higher per contractor?
Did you know that regardless of the eventual outcome, each court case involving a severed contractor costs the applicable company between $10,000 and $20,000 in legal fees?
Did you know that using a traditional third party agency that manages contractors does not create a safe harbour for contractors or their employers with whom they engage?
PCSI has designed a unique solution that is intended to address these specific concerns. Using PCSI Certified contractors helps protect employers from having their independent contractors deemed as “dependent” by the Canadian courts.
