Always Here Home Care does not employ independent contractors. All of our caregivers are employees and we file W-2 forms for all of them.

“Federal and state officials, many facing record budget deficits, are starting to aggressively pursue companies that try to pass off regular employees as independent contractors….Among the most often misclassified workers are truck drivers, construction workers, home health aides and high-tech engineers….A Harvard study found that 4.5 percent of Massachusetts workers were misclassified, while a Cornell study concluded that 10 percent of New York’s private-sector workers were.” By STEVEN GREENHOUSE
