Independent contractors are not considered employees of the College, and are paid through Accounts Payable. Because taxes are not withheld from their payments, only those who meet the Internal Revenue Service's definition of an independent contractor may be paid through Accounts Payable. Before paying someone as an independent contractor or consultant, rather than hiring and paying the individual as an employee of the College, various factors need to be considered. Please see “The Fair Labor Standards Act, Work Hours, and Pay Procedures” policy for more details. The Assistant Director, Human Resources will need to be contacted before paying someone as an independent contractor through Accounts Payable.
The College requires that independent contractors / consultants have a contract with the College for services.
College sponsor's of Independent Contractors who want the Independent Contractor to have a net ID or other access to College systems must complete the non-employee registration form.
