Is My Homeschool Co-op Teacher an Employee or Independent Contractor?
Should your homeschool co-op teacher be classified as an employee or an Independent Contractor? What’s the difference and how do you make the decision? Carol Topp, CPA, the HomeschoolCPA, sheds light onto this confusing topic and tells you how she determines if a co-op teacher is an employee or Independent Contractor.
Worker Classification Consultation
- Is your homeschool teacher an employee or independent contractor?
- Should your homeschool co-op director be paid as an employee?
- How hard is it to set up a payroll system?
- What happens if my homeschool group misclassifies a worker? Are their penalties?
Worker classification can be a confusing topic.
My book Paying Workers in a Homeschool Organization can help clear a lot of confusion, but perhaps you want to discuss your particular situation in a private, individual phone consultation.
I offer phone consultations to help you determine if your homeschool organization’s workers are employee or independent contractors. The phone call will be followed up with an email containing a fact-based determination and information to help you take the next steps.
