The Differences in Independent Contractors and Employees in Day Spas

independent contractor vs employees
Listen to this episode

On today’s podcast, we feed the therapists soup and talk about the difference between independent contractors and employees. The differences are very clear and not because you have brand standards but the independent contractor can have opinions too.

Both can work but you need to be clear about what your local and state laws say about both.
