Rick Ferrante, president of Homecare Services Santa Clarita and Woodland Hills shares his insight on various matters concerning senior care and working with caregivers.
There are times when individuals may want to pay a caregiver under the table allowing that person to save money while offering the caregiver more money. Beyond this being against the law, there are various potential risks that could be involved. For instance, by bringing in a caregiver, you could potentially be creating a situation where you are an employer and that person is an employee. If this is the case, then you may be required to hold things such as payroll taxes, and even workers compensation if the person is injured at your home.
The employer relationship is something that is determined by different factors including Federal tax law. Thus, there are times when this independent contractor is actually an employee.
When working with an agency for at home care services, a lot of these challenges or grey areas can be avoided as the agency will handle things such as payroll taxes, workers compensation, and even provide an equally qualified person if that caregiver calls in sick or is simply unavailable.
Knowing these things and having the right information can help in making informed decisions when approaching at home care and hiring a caregiver. The most important thing is do what is best for you are your family between going with an individual and an agency.
However, knowing the law as well as pros and cons of each can help in weighing the two options. If you would like to learn more or have any questions with respect to what was mentioned in the blog or video, please feel free to give us a call and we would be happy to assist you.
