Consultant PassThrough Program
Payrolling situations are becoming more common for employers who utilize select contract employees and their specific skills without the assistance of an outside agent. In a traditional payrolling situation, employers have located the candidate, but do not want to take on the burden of payroll administration functions.
Employers need a back-office provider to become the legal W-2 Employer of Record for the contract employee, provide mandated insurance coverages and ensure proper tax withholdings, including a form W-2 at the end of the year for tax purposes, thus eliminating a variety of paperwork issues, benefit problems, liability, exposure, etc. Additionally, independent contract employees (1099s) are often converted to W-2 payrolled employees.
Online Resources program was developed to accommodate all businesses and is the ideal way to alleviate the administrative burden of payrolling for the following:
• Project Staff
• Contract Staff
• Short-term Assignments
• Long-term Assignments
Online Resources Consultant PassThrough Program offers our clients the opportunity to decrease the expense and administrative tasks associated with managing this process. In addition, having contractors paid by an external vendor mitigates many of the co-employment risks facing companies today. We believe our organization and its' dedicated infrastructure sets us apart from our competition.
