Why I hire employees rather than contractors for my tutoring business

If you are thinking about starting a business and working with others, you will want to consider carefully whether you are going to onboard team members as independent contractors or employees. Here are the reasons I choose to hire employees, rather than independent contractors.


I hire employees because I want to be able to train them

  • You are not allowed to train independent contractors

  • I value training and professional development I provide for my team


I hire employees because I don't want to live in fear of being audited by the IRS

  • Who wants to live in fear of breaking the rules?

  • I value training and professional development I provide for my team


I hire employees because there are some hidden benefits

  • I received over $50,000 in tax credits
