FSI Learning Explorations – What Families Need to Know When Hiring Respite Workers

Return to Community Events listing


Join us on Monday November 7th for What Families Need to Know When Hiring Respite Workers with Caitlin Goodsell

Hiring a respite provider is not always as straightforward as it seems. In this session, we will explore the different ways of correctly hiring respite providers under the guidelines set out by the Canada Revenue Agency and Employment Standards. We will focus on when respite providers are classified as employees and when they are classified as contractors. We will also cover the obligations for both the families and staff under each type of relationship.

Learning Outcomes:

  • Participants will have a greater understanding of when respite providers are considered employees and when they are considered contractors
  • Participants will understand their obligations when they are the employer of respite staff
  • Participants will have greater understanding of the legislative authorities that need to be considered when hiring respite staff
