We want to help you minimise risks in all areas of your business, particularly when it comes to contractor engagement. An integral
component of our contingent workforce solutions includes assisting with corporate risk in the following areas: Employment, Insurances,
WorkCover, Taxation and OH&S. Oncore’s fully compliant solutions will ensure these matters, among others, are
managed proactively, minimising risk to both your contractors and your company.
Most commonly, we take on the full employment risk associated with engaging contractors and when combined with Oncore managing your
payroll, WorkCover and insurances, we can offer a significantly reduced employment risk for your company.
Contractor Engagement Risks and Liabilities
Oncore recommend engaging contractors under a PAYG model with the ability to salary package business expenses or under a Pty Ltd Company, where the contractor would be responsible for their own PI and PL insurance cover and workers compensation.
We do not recommend engaging contractors in non-compliant structures such as sole traders and trusts due to taxation and insurance risks with unpaid PAYG tax liabilities, superannuation contribution liabilities and potential governance issues for your company board.
Direct contractor engagement also poses risks including potential sham contracting claims if tests are not met, permanent employment claims, fines for breaches, brand / reputational damage or personal risk of penalties against Directors and HR managers.
We will work through all your contractor engagement arrangements to significantly reduce risk for your company.
Occupational Health and Safety
Effectively managing OH&S is critical to mitigating risk in any organisation and Oncore is committed to providing a safe and healthy workplace for all employees, visitors and contractors. We recognise our responsibilities and requirements placed upon us by Occupational Health and Safety legislation and codes of practice and will adhere to these principles in collaboration with our clients, employees and contractors.
Oncore contractors will be expected to fulfill their obligations with respect to OH&S legislation by fully participating in safety programs, reporting injuries and incidents and following all safety directions, regulations and procedures.
