TRAINING: Employee/Independent Contractor (EIC) Review (UH West Oahu) – March 15, 2017

RCUH Training: Employee/Independent Contractor Review

Wednesday, March 15, 2017
UH West Oahu, Campus Center C247
10:30am – 12:00pm

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 “Oahu” (case-sensitive) under “Select Training Island”. If you have any trouble signing up, please feel free contact Tana Staub at [email protected] or 956-7055.
