If you employ Independent Contractors & Augmented Staff, we can help navigate your business risk.
By outsourcing your Independent Contractors or augmented staff to a third party Employment Agency acting as their Employer of Record (EoR), you can:
- Eliminate Contractor-Employee Worker Misclassification
- Navigate and Identify Employer Risks and Liability
- Reduce Payroll Administration
Unintentional contractor-employee worker misclassification can result in hefty penalties, costs, and headaches for employers when hiring independent contractors, consultants, freelancers, and augmented staff. Many smart Canadian employers mitigate the risk of such potential worker misclassification by utilizing a third party employment agency to employ such workers on their behalf.
Manage Employer Liability
As a Professional Employer Organization (PEO), we take on the independent contractors of our Canadian clients as the Employer of Record (EoR) and then lease such workers back to them, absorbing the day to day payroll administration responsibilities.
As a licensed employment agency following industry-specific CRA regulations and various provincial Employment Standards Act, we can employ contractors (incorporated contractors and sole proprietors) and place them at client sites throughout Canada as our very own agency placement workers (i.e. assignment workers).
Sound Legal Structure
Most contractor payroll agencies are just licensed employment agencies which gives them the right to employ independent contractors as placement workers. That’s great protection for them, but very few are also registered Professional Employer Organizations (PEOs) like us, which together provides the most sound legal structure for your company to manage your independent contractors.
We assume all employer payroll obligations such as making bi-weekly EFT direct bank deposit payments to contractors, remit employer payroll taxes, make employee source deductions, and ensure compliance with provincial employment standards. Say goodbye to late government filings and late payment fees!
Contracted and Augmented Staff Outsourcing
As a licensed employment agency, we can employ augmented staff such as incorporated contractors, sole proprietors, and employees as agency placement workers.
Highly Competitive Rates
We offer competitive rates thanks to our innovative financing terms.
Worker’s Compensation Insurance
When independent contractors have difficulties obtaining their own Workers’ Compensation insurance, Canadian Payroll Services provides them with coverage under our agency’s umbrella workers’ compensation policies across Canada.
