IC Compliance

Leverage our expertise to manage global independent contractor compliance and mitigate risks associated with worker misclassification.

What is IC Compliance?

IC compliance is essential for organizations engaging independent contractors (IC) to navigate regulatory requirements effectively. Without it, your organization is vulnerable to legal and financial risks.

IC Compliance ensures proper classification of workers, which minimizes risks such as legal penalties and reputational damage. By maintaining meticulous documentation and contract management practices, organizations uphold ethical standards and mitigate operational risks, enabling them to leverage the benefits of independent contractor engagements with confidence.
