Startups

Modern Labor can help your startup hire contractors compliantly.


How we help

Many startups like to hire contractors for various roles such as software engineering. However, increasing labor regulation, such as AB5 in California, mean that companies can no longer automatically treat contractors as 1099 workers, and instead must either take on individuals as employees or have an external company employ them and assign them back to the company. That's where Modern Labor steps in.

Your core skill as a startup is building great products, not payroll, regulations, funding, and various back-office work that go into payrolling contractors. We help startups focus on their core by acting as the employer of record of contractors, handling everything from time sheets to regulatory compliance.
