There are state specific laws surrounding worker’s comp and TargetCW must consider the costs associated with remaining in compliance which in turn, affects the rate of certain positions. To put it simply, there is less risk of sustaining an injury while working an administrative or clerical type of position than there is with someone who works in a warehouse.

If unqualified, the CRA will notify the client that we can proceed as a W2 worker.
What are per diems? How do per diems work?
Per diems are daily rates offered to a worker when they have to travel or be away from home overnight for the purpose of their assignment. The worker does not have to provide receipts for their purchases as this is an allotted amount. Per diems can be processed beforehand or after the trips. Per diems are non-taxable (as long as they below the federal limit amount) and will be processed like a reimbursement. Workers complete a Formstack which the Account Manager receives via email. Approvals can be arranged if the client wishes to view details of per diem request before processing.
What are expenses? How do expenses work?
Expenses are amounts that are incurred by the worker for transactions made for the purposes of work. If the client is requesting that the worker make a purchase that will aid in the completion of their task or else some purchase the client has offered to reimburse. Expenses can only be reimbursed with proof of purchase (receipts, bank statements) and can only be processed after the purchase has been made. Expense reimbursements are non-taxable. A worker will complete the TCW Expense Report Form and provide backup documentation and approval process will be arranged before the Account Manager pays the amount out.
Sick time/PTO/Holiday Pay – What do I need to know?
TargetCW adheres to sick ordinances as they are mandated across state, county, and city lines. We will inform the client if any of their workers or departments
will be affected by a particular ordinance. Clients may offer PTO or Holiday pay to their contingent workers and TargetCW can assist with setting
up a robust PTO policy that would supersede any sick ordinances or mandates, should they desire one. Otherwise, TargetCW will closely monitor
the accruals and depletion of all sick ordinances and/or PTO plans.
TargetCW can assist with contingent workers that are minors by complying with state-specific guidelines pertaining to age and any scheduling restrictions that might be in place. Additionally, TargetCW is able to advise on how to obtain any necessary worker’s permits for these minors.
