In accordance with ISO 9001:2015 requirements, our teams follow industry updates and updates directly from statutory and regulatory bodies, such as memos from the U.S. Department of Homeland Security (DHS) and U.S. Citizenship and Immigration Services (USCIS), regarding requirements and best practices pertaining to citizenship, immigration, work visa administration and associated risks which may impact smRTpass or our customers. By staying abreast of requirements, we are confident in our ability to provide advisory services to customers regarding citizen and immigration related services.

independent contractor validation
Independent Contractors are a critical part to being agile, procuring on-demand expertise and achieving your mission. However, misclassification of contingent workers as independent contractors without reasonable basis, per IRS guidelines, can be costly. Trust smRTpass to continuously evaluate these relationships and determine if there exists reasonable basis for independent contractor classification.
We understand the nuances to these relationships and leverage a proprietary 80-point Independent Contractor Classification Questionnaire to advise your business on associated risk and whether to proceed with the contingent worker as an independent contractor or if they should instead be established as another type of worker.
