Professional and domestic workers can no longer be classified as independent contractors; they are employees. Additionally, most households and individuals are not adequately set up to legally employ professional and domestic workers. This means, among other things, the employer must file a W-2 with the IRS instead of 1099. All relevant taxes must be filed as an employer and adherence to state and federal laws regarding work hours, payment, sick leave, and breaks.
