When you first add an independent contractor to Workful, you'll set their pay rate as either hourly or a fixed rate. If their rate later changes, you can easily update it through Workful. You can also add a starting balance if you've already paid them this year.
Click “PEOPLE” on your admin menu.
If your small business hires both employees and contractors, you can view only your contractor list by clicking "CONTRACTOR."
Choose a contractor.
Click “EDIT” beside “Pay Rate and Starting Balance.”
Select whether the contractor will be paid per hour or on a fixed rate.
If you're paying the contractor hourly, enter how much they make per hour.
If you're paying the contractor a fixed rate, enter how much they will make.
Then, choose how often they'll make it (per hour, week, month, or year).
If you have paid the contractor this year, enter the total amount you have paid them. This will ensure their 1099-MISC is correct at the end of the year.
Then, choose the starting balance effective date.
