PCSI Solution For Employers

Listen.

Would you be interested in a much simpler way of protecting your organization from the Dependent Contractor issue and employee misclassification?

Would you also be interested in having a legal defense fund available should a contractor claim they are dependent?

There is a simple way to protect your organization from all the emerging issues that are threatening the contractor model as we know it in Canada. It’s PCSI. And it comes with a legal defense fund.

It is common for organizations to think there are only two options to choose from to address the quickly escalating issues surrounding employee misclassification and dependent contractors.

  • Transition all contractors into employees
  • Remain status quo and hope to continue to fly under the radar

There is another option: PCSI

With PCSI you can protect your organization from the emerging issues AND maintain your contractor base.

PCSI Certification

As the contracting landscape quickly evolves in Canada PCSI Certification allows organizations to continue to use the same contractor model but without the risk of being found guilty of employee misclassification or having your contractors deemed as dependent. It’s an easy solution to implement.

Your organization can simply have your current and preferred contractor base become PCSI Certified. PCSI Certification also allows contractors to continue to work as a contractor without the risk of being reclassified as a PSB by the CRA.

PCSI Certification costs a lot less than one would think for this type of protection. The benefits far outweigh the costs. Everyone involved wins!

Benefits of PCSI Certification for an Organization

Using PCSI Certified contractors mitigates the risk of your contractors being reclassified as dependent on your organization or your organization being found guilty of employee misclassification by:

  • Mitigating severance risk

  • Mitigating future potential tax liability

  • Mitigating penalties and fees related to misclassification

  • Removing concern of all the criteria used to determine contractor dependency (control, ownership of tools, risk of profit/loss, degree of integration with the organization)

  • Providing the organization with a legal defense fund should a contractor claim they are dependent

  • Maintaining the contractor model

Implementing the PCSI Solution

PCSI works closely with your organization throughout the entire process. We provide support during the organizational change management process and ongoing support to each contractor as they take the simple steps to becoming PCSI Certified.

The Impact on Contractor Payment/Payroll

The impact to your Accounts Payable/Payroll team will be minimal. In fact, because PCSI can consolidate the invoicing for all your contractors it may even make the process more efficient for your team to process.

  1. The PCSI Certified contractor sends their approved time sheet with an invoice to PCSI
  2. PCSI manages the invoicing with your organization (end client)
  3. Your organization pays the invoice to PCSI
  4. The PCSI Certified contractor receives payment via EFT from PCSI

How is the PCSI Solution Different?

  1. Current Case Law supports our protection offered to employers and independent contractors
  2. We offer a unique model to independent contractors that significantly mitigates financial risk for both contractors and employers
  3. The PCSI Solution is CRA compliant

Testimonials

Every Independent Contractor in Canada should pay attention to this solution provided by PCSI if they and their accountant are concerned with the PSB issue. Finally, there is a CRA compliant solution that gives a contractor a stable tax structure and more importantly compliance reassurance. As a former CRA Auditor specializing in this area, I can tell you PCSI has done its homework and diligence. Employers also mitigate risk when it comes to the new Dependent Contractor classification.

Past court cases have shown that traditional approaches are no longer a viable safeguard against the rapidly escalating financial exposure relating to employment issues.By working with PCSI we are able to offer the only true risk mitigation strategy for Canadian companies engaging with
independent contractors.

Aly Bandali, CEO of Professional Contractor Solutions, gave a very educational presentation to our Branch. Aly has excellent knowledge of the independent contractor issues. His presentation provided a clear understanding of what the considerations need to be for both contractors and the companies that hire them for their services.

Aly’s [PCSI] was an excellent session. He is articulate and knowledgeable, and I recommend PCSI’s expertise for any organization whose employees or members are connected in any way to contracting and consulting services, either as a client or provider.

The APEGA Calgary Branch organized the presentation “Strategies for Independent Contractors, Employers and Progressive Organizations” by Professional Contractor Solutions.
