Does anyone hire 1099s?

5 replies
Are there any businesses here that hire 1099s for ad hoc help or to manage peak demand?

What services do you use?

    You mean independent contractors, yes many businesses use these types of laborers. It is a popular way to manage high volume business times, some of the marketplaces include: Toptal, upwork, fiverr and freelancer.

    Another marketplace is freeeup.com (yes, the three 'e's are necessary.)

    It's common for coaches and product creators to hire 1099s.

    There are rules and regs in USA re: using 1099ers. The problem is what an employee is vs a contractor.

    For example, a person who comes into your home to watch your kids during the day while you are work is an EMPLOYEE. No matter what you pay. The exceptions would be if you hired an agency and they sent someone out, OR, if your child care provider is a licensed business.

    See, you can't tell a contractor when to work and where. IF they have regular hours and have to be somewhere at a certain time and place, they would be considered employees.

    Now this isn't too bad for you, the contractor, but for US, the people who might hire you...it could be an IRS nightmare, and full of potential legal problems.

    Just be aware of this end. But to answer you question, sure, lots of work out there for contractors.

    PS. Thanks to Jason K for freeeup.com, something new to me.

    The OP is not posting from the US - so why ask about 1099?

      probably does not know what that is. I would just use a service site like upwork and let them worry about it
