FSI Learning Explorations – What Families Need to Know When Hiring Respite Workers

June 23, 2021 @ 10:00 am - 12:00 pm PDT

SESSION INFO:   « Back to all events

Join us for What Families Need to Know When Hiring Respite Workers with Caitlin Goodsell

Hiring a respite provider is not always as straightforward as it seems. In this session, we will explore the different ways of correctly hiring respite providers under the guidelines set out by the Canada Revenue Agency and Employment Standards. We will focus on when respite providers are classified as employees and when they are classified as contractors. We will also cover the obligations for both the families and staff under each type of relationship.
