The Hassle-Free Way to Hire In-House Employees

Have you considered hiring extra staff for your office, but hesitate because of all the hassles and liability tied to W-2 employees?

Did you know that you can add staff to your office and outsource the employment of that worker (along with all the time-consuming tasks) to Top Echelon Contracting?

Through our In-House Clerical and Administrative Program (ICAP), we become the legal W-2 employer of your short-term staff. We will handle all of the employment tasks. These include background checks, weekly payroll processing, taxes, unemployment, workers’ compensation, year-end reporting, etc.

In-house employees: an example

ICAP generally costs $1.750 per hour over and above the pay rate, plus the employer’s payroll taxes and insurance. Below is an example based on an Ohio worker:

Employee’s Hourly Pay Rate $15.00 + Employer Taxes and Liability Insurance $2.94 + Top Echelon Contracting $1.75 = Your Hourly Bill Rate $19.69

The hiring process is simple:

  • Call our office for an ICAP quote.
  • You recruit and select the candidate.
  • You complete the ICAP set-up form on our website.
  • We will send you a Client Services Agreement for In-House Staffing.
  • We will email the candidate a link to their secure online employment paperwork.
  • After the paperwork is completed your new in-house employee can begin work!

Plus, if the candidate works at least 30 hours per week, they will be eligible for Aetna healthcare, dental, vision, and life insurance, as well as 401(k). Please note, however, that we do NOT contribute to the healthcare premium for ICAP participants. If your in-house worker elects health insurance, we will invoice you an additional $188.56 per month. Due to healthcare reform (ACA) requirements, the worker must be paid at least $15.00 per hour to ensure that healthcare coverage meets the affordability requirement.

Workers eligible for this program include administrative assistants, bookkeepers, researchers, recruiters, clerks, receptionists, and data entry personnel. We cannot employ agency owners, partners, etc.
