Hiring Home Care Workers:
Avoiding Tax and Legal Risks
Free March 30 Web Conference Helps Louisiana Families Reduce Risks in Hiring Home Care Providers
The non-profit National Private Duty Association (NPDA), along with the Home Care Solutions, has announced that it will host a consumer education web conference entitled Hiring Home Care Workers: Avoiding Tax and Legal Risks on March 30, 2011, at 7 p.m. (CT). The live and interactive program, which will provide advice on reducing risks during the home care hiring process, is free of charge to participants.
“Most seniors want to remain living at home as long as possible. The goal of our upcoming program is to educate families to help them make the best decisions when hiring caregivers for their seniors who need assistance around the house,” said Sheila McMackin, president of NPDA. “Going into this hiring process with a solid foundation of knowledge puts your mind at ease and reduces the potential for tax and legal problems down the road.”
The web conference topics include understanding home care provider hiring guidelines, tax and legal issues, identifying risks and independent contractor issues.
