ClearPayroll: Contractor Payrolling and Engagement

When you know who you want to hire

Often you already know who you want to work with. Many potential workers are found through internal referral channels instead of, or in addition to, using a staffing firm to find them. These pre-identified workers can include alumni, retirees, project-based and other types of temporary workers. 

At ClearPath, we provide the means for you to indirectly engage these pre-identified contractors. From helping determine if they should be a 1099 or W-2, to all the on-boarding and ongoing administration involved in paying them, we take care of it.
