Seems like a win-win for everyone, right? The independent contractor model is not without significant risks, however. In addition to the very real risk of misclassification (and the often seemingly draconian consequences that come with it) are other risks. What happens when the independent contractor is injured while working for you? Can you be liable when the independent contractor makes a mistake? Do you have any obligations to the independent contractor’s employees or to a sub-contractor? Often the answer can be “yes”. But it doesn’t have to be.
