Independent Contractors

Info Cubic helps our clients view their prospective independent contractors from every angle, giving them peace of mind that they are keeping their workforces safe, mitigating risk and representing their brands well.

Challenges of Hiring Independent Contractors

The gig economy is comprised of freelancers, or contract workers who work short-term contract assignments. Companies that utilize independent contractors, or gig workers, are under constant pressure to hire responsible and ethical people who represent their brands well. Even though contract workers can present liabilities and the potential to damage a company’s brand, many companies don’t screen potential independent contractors.

Gig workers present many unique challenges in the hiring and recruitment process, including:

  • Companies opting not to screen gig workers even though they pose a large amount of potential risk.
  • High level of trust put on contract employees since they are representing a company’s brand and may have access to a company’s sensitive information.
  • In many cases, companies must comply with government regulations when hiring contract workers.
  • Slow and inaccurate results from background screening companies delay the hiring process resulting in either lost productivity or contractors signing on with your competitors.

Background screening for independent contractors can boost workplace safety, increase employee and consumer safety, and reduce liability. From criminal record checks to drug testing, Info Cubic is a “one-stop-shop” partner for companies hiring gig workers, offering an easy-to-use platform, a 19.15-hour average turnaround time for all non-instant searches, and a 99.9% accuracy rate.
