Why Home Care Assistance vs Hiring a Caregiver

Liability Issues When You Hire Your CaregiverUse an HCA CaregiverHire Your Own
If you hire a caregiver directly as an “independent contractor” to save money, the caregiver is really an “employee.” That exposes you to all expenses, liabilities and risks of having an employee.
Caregivers who work the hours you
specify, follow your directions, and
use your home and equipment
(e.g., dishwasher, washer & dryer,
vacuum, kitchen and household
equipment) are legally your
employees – not independent
contractors.
If the caregiver is injured on the job (for example, a back injury that won’t heal), who is liable?
HCA is liable

HCA caregivers are covered by Workers Compensation (WCB) insurance. That is an expense we cover for you.
The caregiver cannot make a claim against you or sue you for medical bills, loss of income, or pain & suffering damages. WCB insurance is the caregiver’s exclusive remedy for those things – by law.

You are legally liable

Without WCB insurance, you are liable for your injured caregiver’s damages.
Even if you and the caregiver have
an agreement that the caregiver
won’t sue you, that “agreement” is
not legally binding and you are still
legally liable for $10,000’s or
$100,000’s - even if the injury was
not your fault.

Who has to withhold the caregiver’s income taxes?HCA is liable

The caregiver is our employee and we withhold these taxes from the caregiver’s paycheck and pay the money to the government.

You are liable

The caregiver is your employee. You must withhold the taxes from the caregiver’s pay and pay it to the government.
Even if you and the caregiver have an agreement that you won’t be liable, you are still legally liable.

What if a caregiver takes valuables from your home?HCA is liable

Who is liable if a caregiver doesn’t provide good care?HCA is liable

We have professional liability insurance to compensate our clients for injuries sustained as a result of caregiver negligence.
We screen caregiver applicants thoroughly and conduct national criminal background checks, and we conduct a proprietary psychological screening test.
We carefully select caregivers for each client who are trained and experienced in the specific needs of the client.
Our caregivers receive ongoing monitoring from one of our Case Managers who is responsible for the client’s care.
Through HCA University® our caregivers learn the latest in caregiving skills and methods.

You are liable

Your homeowner’s insurance may not cover this since the caregiver is being paid to work in your home and is legally an employee. You would need to check with your insurance company to see what coverages are included or excluded.
