Christine Ashton will be speaking at a Lunch & Learn for Ajax-Pickering Board of Trade – “Employer Best Practices: Hire Contractors or Employees?”

For most businesses, labour costs represent a large portion of the day-to-day operating expenses. In order to remain profitable and competitive, particularly in today’s quickly changing marketplace, it is important for business owners and managers to adopt successful labour strategies. Part of these strategies includes properly assessing and determining whether to hire a worker as an employee or as a contractor.

At this Lunch + Learn, Sarah Netley of Collins Barrow Durham LLP and Christine Ashton of Wilson Vukelich LLP will speak about determining whether to hire employees or contractors. They will cover:

  • the tax obligations in regards to employees v.s. contractors;
  • the legal obligations and liability exposure in regards to employees v.s. contractors; and
  • the best practices for drafting employee and contractor agreements.
