Being an “Employee”
In today’s business world, being an employee is not the only way someone can be hired to carry out work. The traditional employee with graded pay scales, benefit packages, and other employment participation may not represent the best format for the company or the worker. The category of “independent contractor” is only one option. Outsourcing, temporary agencies, and consultants represent options which bring many cost-saving elements to the table. For example, there are clear cost benefits, such as no pension, no health benefits, and no long term employment commitment to the individual hired under these titles. Cite one or more Internet sources in your initial response.
