Contractor onboarding checklist: Required documents

Entering the gig economy can be a highly rewarding business strategy — yet, organizations that do so without the proper governance measures in place or fail to collect the necessary onboarding documents required for contingent workers, are leaving themselves vulnerable to unforgiving tax, financial, legal and branding risks.

While contingent workers introduce greater flexibility and substantial cost savings into an organization, this type of model also carries operational risks and additional administrative pain points that come with contingent workforce management. As such, it’s critical for organizations to verify compliance records and remain diligent in the collection, verification and management of these documents – while also providing a painless and engaging onboarding experience.
