These training sessions are being 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 Video Conference and live training through Employee Self Service (ESS) and search “Oahu”, “Hawaii”, “Kauai”, or “Maui”  (case-sensitive) under “Select Training Island”. If you have any trouble signing up or are interested in scheduling a separate session for your staff, please feel free to contact Tana Staub at [email protected] or 956-7055.
