What is an Independent Contractor?
Independent Contractors through By Your Side Home Care will be placed on a Registry of Caregivers after completing the screening process. This process includes a Criminal Background Check, reference checking, Department of Health Competency Test and a 2-step Tuberculosis test.
Upon successful completion of this process, referrals for work will then be made to you. As an independent contractor, you are able to choose from the referrals we offer, work your preferred hours and even directly decide with your client on your fees if mutually agreeable. In essence, you are your own boss!
Because you are considered self employed, you are free to accept or decline any work, will be paid directly by your client and are responsible for reporting your income and paying your taxes. Independent contractors are not eligible for benefits through By Your Side Home Care.
