Independent Domestic Workers

Why Use a Referral Agency?

Referral Agencies minimize the consumer’s costs while maximizing the Domestic Worker’s income and reducing the underground economy. It’s a win-win-win! Referral Agencies attract Domestic Workers who choose to work through an agency in order to increase their income and receive a 1099 at year-end.

Without Referral Agencies, these Domestic Workers would more likely work as “private” workers and contribute to the underground economy. Moreover, the Domestic Workers are responsible for their work, ensuring there is greater accountability for the services provided. Customers tell us the quality of Independent Domestic Workers is significantly higher than those of “employed” workers.

Independent Domestic Workers

Spotless Maids Referral Agency is not the employer of the Independent Domestic Worker referred to you. The Domestic Worker may be your employee or an independent contractor, depending on the relationship you have with him or her. If you direct and control the manner and means by which the Domestic Worker performs his or her work, you may have employer responsibilities, including employment taxes and worker’s compensation, under state and federal law.

For additional information contact your local Employment Development Department, Franchise Tax Board, and the Internal Revenue Service.
