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” or “Oahu” (case-sensitive) under “Select Training Island”. If you have any trouble signing up or are interested in scheduling a session outside of UH Manoa, please feel free contact Tana Staub at [email protected] or 956-7055. This is the first session of several that we will be holding this year and we are happy to schedule on neighbor islands and other campuses if there is any interest.
