Jun. 5, 2011

• Consider hiring someone in human resources specifically to track and manage the contingent workforce.

• Classify workers carefully and be sure they meet federal and state criteria for independent contractor status.

• Choose the staffing agencies that supply your workers carefully, and make sure your contract with them protects you from legal liability.

• Check the backgrounds of contingent workers as thoroughly as for regular employees.
