Customer Question

Hi, do you know if that's required to do a employment screen for new hires in IN? And can I still hire someone as contractors (1099) if they work with tools I provided?

Certain industries require it such as schools and hospitals. It is a highly recommended practice because you could be liable for their actions. Just loaning them tools would not confer upon them employee status. Though you should have a written agreement requiring refund or replacement if they lose or damage any tool.

what are the best ways to conduct this background screening?
Expert:  Asad Rahman replied 1 year ago.

There are companies that will do it for you while ensuring privacy of the employee. I would suggest using a vendor if you do not have the hr department trained in performing them. The reason being a violation on your part could expose you. The basic critera is using the social security number to determine any criminal history.

Thanks. So is the employer forced to provide health insurance benefit to the employees?
Expert:  Asad Rahman replied 1 year ago.

Only if they have a certain number of employees and meet certain criteria under the Obamacare regulations.
