  • The university independent contractor process involves policy and procedures, based on Internal Revenue Services  regulations, that ensure workers are appropriately classified as employees, through the HR hiring process, or as independent contractors, through the independent contractor compliance process.

    The IRS has given high priority to the proper classifications of worker relationships and the tax implications of the decisions made by institutions. The penalties for misclassifying workers as independent contractors are significant. If a worker is reclassified by the IRS as an employee, the institution will be liable for the amount of the federal income taxes that should have been withheld during the period of misclassification as well as FICA taxes (both employer's and employee's), interest, and penalties. In addition, employee benefits would have to be extended to the misclassified worker.
