Businesses - Bidding
A project is a job that the homeowner needs done. This home job can be anything from appraising your house to a remodeling job to weekly residential cleaning services.
Bidding on a project or job is essentially providing a homeowner with a quote and is similar to bidding at a reverse auction because the homeowner will have the opportunity to select the most competitive quote.
To bid on a project or home job, click on Projects from the header menu or Search for Projects from the menu on the left. You can select from the different categories or search by keyword from the search box. Click on a project to go to that project's page and there should be a Place Bid option below the project's details. You should enter an amount and a description of what your bid includes.
You will be asked to use one of your business listings (required) so the homeowner will know who you are and check out your listing page with the details of your bussiness, your ratings and reviews, if available.
When the homeowner accepts your or someone else's bid, you will be notified via e-mail in either case that you have won or lost the project. You can also see the status in My Account > My Bids.
Once the homeowner accepts your bid, their contact information will be revealed to you in the Project detail screen.
You can go to My Bids from the left side menu when you are logged in.
Businesses - Misc
Sometimes it is not straightforward to determine an Independent Contractor versus an Employee. According to IRS regulations there are three basic categories of factors that are relevant to determining a worker's classification: behavioral control, financial control and relationship of the parties.
Behavioral Control covers facts that show whether the business has a right to direct and control what work is accomplished and how the work is done, through instructions, training, or other means.
Financial Control covers facts that show whether the business has a right to direct or control the financial and business aspects of the worker's job. This includes:
- The extent to which the worker has unreimbursed business expenses
- The extent of the worker's investment in the facilities or tools used in performing services
- The extent to which the worker makes his or her services available to the relevant market
- How the business pays the worker, and
- The extent to which the worker can realize a profit or incur a loss
Type of Relationship covers facts that show the type of relationship the parties had. This includes:
- Written contracts describing the relationship the parties intended to create
- Whether the business provides the worker with employee-type benefits, such as insurance, a pension plan, vacation pay, or sick pay
- The permanency of the relationship, and
- The extent to which services performed by the worker are a key aspect of the regular business of the company
