About This Workshop
During this 90-minute online workshop intended for yoga studio owners, we will cover the many issues involving the characterization of yoga teachers and other yoga studio workers as either independent contractors or employees. We will examine the federal and state tests for determining whether your teachers are independent contractors or employees. Using an example agreement, we will review the necessary items to include in a studio-teacher agreement. We will also consider treating teachers as employees rather than independent contractors and what that may mean for your studio. While the independent contractor laws will be specific to the U.S., the example agreement may be helpful to studios and teachers residing in Canada, as well.
