I am an engineer who works as an independent contractor and I have a client who wants to take me on as a part time employee. He says that he will be able to pick up certain contracts if he can show that he has a PE on staff. The plan is that he would pay me some meager salary for the employment while I continue to serve him independently on a per contract basis through my business.
Any experience with such arrangements? Any foreseeable pitfalls? I am in the process of consulting my insurance broker and tax preparer for what they think about it.
