Hiring Outside Consultants
If you wish to generate pay for work performed by a non-employee (i.e. an independent contractor), please note that such outside workers must meet IRS guidelines to be legally paid outside the normal payroll process. Generally, they must be in business for themselves and maintain their own liability insurance (at least $1 million is standard). Please click on the following link for more information. Call Human Resources at ext. 4397 if you are uncertain of the legality of any proposed payments.
Regular reviews are an important part of enhancing performance and managing workplace expectations. While documentation is important, this process should create helpful two-way or multi-dimensional communication. Return the completed form (including supervisory and employee signatures) to the Human Resources office.
