Many employers choose to utilize independent contractors instead of employees. Independent contractors can offer a greater degree of flexibility for your business. However, an employer must be cautioned to structure the legal relationship correctly, otherwise the Courts or the Ministry of Labour may make a finding of an employment relationship, which would expose the employer to greater liability and potentially to legal damages.
