Depending on your needs, it might be better for you to hire a contractor instead of a full-time employee. However, there is no denying that turning a contractor into an employee holds important benefits such as

  • Reduced turnover rate
  • Avoiding compliance issues such as misclassification
  • Having more control over working hours
  • Lowering the risk of owing back taxes and benefits which can result in painful penalties

Of course, things can become more complicated if the contractor you wish to turn into an employee is located abroad. How can you best tackle this issue?
