Feb 10: RCUH Training: Employee/Independent Contractor (EIC) Review – UH Hilo

Feb 10: RCUH Training: Employee/Independent Contractor (EIC) Review – UH Hilo

10:30am – 12:00pm
UH Hilo, `Imiloa Conference Room

This training session will be held to provide Principal Investigators and Project Administrators with a set of guidelines on EIC Determinations. It is the policy of the RCUH to properly classify individuals providing services as an “Employee,” “Independent Contractor,” or “Non-Employee.” Misclassification of employees as independent contractors is a serious issue and could result in being held liable for employment taxes (income tax withholdings, Social Security and Medicare, unemployment) for that worker in addition to penalties and interest. Organizations are being scrutinized as never before, as federal and state agencies are ramping up enforcement efforts.

Please sign up for a training through Employee Self Service (ESS) and search “Hawaii” (case-sensitive) under “Select Training Island”. If you have any trouble signing up or are interested in scheduling a session, please feel free to contact Tana Staub at [email protected] or 956-7055.
