At Ready Hands Home Care, we don’t just place independent contractors with clients for a fee. Our Home Care Aides are true, valued W-2 employees, for whom Ready Hands assumes all the legal obligations and risks of employment.
That’s an important difference from many other companies, who designate their staff as independent contractors to avoid paying payroll taxes. Such companies also deprive both workers and consumers of important protections, like workers compensation insurance and coverage in emergencies. The IRS says that consumers can direct only the result of the work done by independent contractors, not the means and methods of accomplishing the result. At Ready Hands, the “means and methods” are important to us. We want to monitor performance and supervise our staff, so that your needs and expectations are met.
