What is a 1099 Employee?
1099 employees are registered as independent contracts. Your staffing company pays the employees but the employees will be responsible for their own taxes. Instead of receiving a W-2, these employees will receive a 1099 form. For Information on how to create 1099 employees, click here.

Time entry and proofing is done the same way any other timecard is in the system. You can identify a 1099 or independent contractor by looking at the Vendor Name column:
The Vendor Name should match the employee's name. Right click the column headers to change which columns display.
This timecard can have hours entered on it and be proofed at the same time as regular timecards.
Once a 1099 timecard has been run through time entry and proofing, you will be able to pay it in a separate run. You will need to run the transactions through as a "SubPay" run in order to complete their payroll.
