Employment Law Questions? Ask an Employment Lawyer.
I direct a small US nonprofit that supports work abroad. We are hiring someone to work for us fulltime in Africa. Are they considered an employee or consultant? They will have residence abroad not in US. Do we need to pay payroll taxes for this person? Thanks.
*This should be Employment law question. I can't edit category, for some reason!!!!
Yes, I set her duties. She is concurrently working on her PhD while working for us. We want to pay her a stipend, which would include funds to go toward her medical & travel insurance.
So if she's an employee, payroll taxes would need to be paid in U.S. even though she is living and working for us abroad? She is U.S. citizen.
