Comment: yes and no

(See in situ)

yes and no

the IRS may not agree with them being contract/1099 labor vs. W2 labor. If the "employess" bring their own tools of the trade, etc. then you would be in a better position to support your assertion that they are contract/1099 laborers. It also depends on how much you manage and direct their work.

There should be some info about this somewhere on the net.

But that is the right direction to be thinking.
