How Hiring An Individual Caregiver Can Create An Employer Relationship

Home Care Services Santa Clarita is a company that provides specially trained and licensed in-home caregivers for seniors. We help families keep seniors, and others needing assistance, safe, healthy and independent in their homes.

Caleigh, a case manager here at Home Care Services shares her knowledge of at home care as well as caregiver management. In this video, she talks of how hiring an individual caregiver can create an employer relationship; Caleigh articulates the differences between working with an agency to hiring an individual caregiver.

Caleigh explains that when hiring a caregiver for in home care and in home help with regard to senior care services, this could create an employer relationship such that in the eyes of the state that person is an employer who is responsible for withholding payroll taxes.

This of course differs from working with an agency who would handle the latter. In addition, a person hiring an independent caregiver could also be responsible for workers compensation as well as human resource duties which could include providing an employee handbook as well as articulating appropriate anti-discrimination laws.

This differs from with working with an agency as the agency would handle all the human resource details making it one less thing the person hiring that caregiver would have to be responsible for.

There are pros and cons to working with an individual as opposed to working with an agency, we hope that as people become aware of the pros and cons concerning senior care services that they will better be able to navigate through the world of in home care.
