Independent Contractors vs. Employees
What You Need to Know

Whether you are a practice owner who hires therapists, a therapist who is hired by a private practice, a home care agency, or hospital, or a therapist who holds themselves out to the public as an independent contractor, understanding what  these classifications really mean  is vital and has important ramifications for both parties.  It is time to take this issue out of the gray matter and separate fact from fiction. UBER has brought the matter of worker classification to the forefront in the last year but therapists have been dealing with this issue for 20 years!!

This issue will be presented in detail from all perspectives as far as therapists are concerned, and from the vantage point of the Internal Revenue Service and the Labor Department, regardless of what state you live in. The onus, and all potential risk is on practice owners to properly classify the therapists and all personnel correctly – so lets get this right! Samples of actual audits on therapy practices will be reviewed. The webinar will be presented on GoToMeetings and can be accessed from your computer, tablet or cell phone.

Learning Objectives:

1) Understand the specific criteria used to determine whether a therapist should be deemed an employee or an independent contractor

2) Understand the rule of “Substance over Form “ application – why the substance of what a therapist does is far more important than the contract they sign!

3) Find out the specifics of what you can do to protect yourself if:
a. you want to classify a therapist as an IC
b. you want to classify some therapists as employees and some as ICs

4) Find out how to “clean” up your worker classifications before an audit

5) Find out what to do if you think you are being misclassified

6) Ten steps to follow if you want to hold yourself out as an Independent Contractor
All participants will receive a template for an IC agreement.

Upon request, you can  receive a certificate of participation if you take the post webinar quiz.  The price includes a link to the recording available 24/7/365 plus a hard copy of the powerpoint and a one page handout.

** This webinar,  presented by Iris Kimberg, MS PT OTR.  is intended for educational and informational purposes services only and does not replace consultations with an attorney. (Iris survived and won a 12 year battle with the NYS Labor Department on this very issue!)  Iris has presented this webinar over 8 times to over 600 therapists from 37 states and has also presented this topic for the PPS of the APTA.
Early rate registration until April 9.

Questions about Selling Your Practice or Buying Someone Else's   

Iris has been involved in helping over 36 private practices sell their entities in New York City and New York State, New Jersey, Connecticut, Florida, California, Oregon, Illinois, Colorado, North Carolina, and Alabama.  Iris has assisted in practice valuations to determine realistic ask prices, developed discreet marketing plans to announce practice sales, and has acted as an intermediary in negotiations and bringing a sale to a successful conclusion. Many times potential buyers of practices reach out to Iris  to help evaluate whether a practice is a good fit, or worth the ask price.  Consultation fees  start as $200 per hour pro-rated with no minimum or maximum time commitment and a simple one page agreement. For information on how we might be able to work together, please feel free to email me in confidence at iris@nytherapyguide.com or fill out the form below.  I look forward to hearing from you and potentially working together.

Name *
I never act as a broker in a practice sale and never work on a commission basis. Often, I know both the buyer and the seller, do not want any appearance of a conflict of interest, and also firmly believe that if a deal is successful, it must be fair and equitable to both sides of the equation.
