Differentiate

Are you a freelancer? Congratulations, you belong to the largest and fastest growing segment of the expanding U.S. workforce. But how do you differentiate yourself in this increasingly crowded pool of available contractors? Here’s a suggestion: demonstrate your IC savviness by becoming IC Precheck certified. Tell clients up front you are IC Precheck certified and that you have all the compliance documentation they need to properly manage the very real IC misclassification risk you both face. Whether your new client is engaging you directly or using a third-party IC compliance provider, your customized IC Precheck Due Diligence & Compliance Package will give them everything they need… on Day 1. No longer will you or your clients have to spend 5-8 days gathering the same old information and documents to ensure you meet IC qualifications.
