If field services become a hourly Employee’s?

What kind of hourly pay rate would the field Inspectors be paid? Already there is mention of real estate agents going to a hourly wage as the whole employer/ independent contractor law suits are becoming more and more prevalent. Could these national companies support such a huge employee base? Or would everyone be hired on as part time employees?

Whatever it is, you'll only be pert-time so no benefits need to be paid, or base + commission on completed inspections where you have to do 30+ per day to make anything.

Everyone should really think about this statement..
SGP has 7,000 vendors nationwide, the in house employees place them over the insurance threshold

If every vendor went to part time then they would need to double or triple the already oversaturated vendors to complete all the work that needs to be done. I do not think it is possible for them to go that route...especially when 90% of the vendors have their own employee's.

I think it more likely, and cheaper on their part, that they need to rethink how they treat their contractors and give us more leeway and control over the work we do. They had the right business model...they just need to do away with the micro managing they have been abusing all these years....that is basically what got them into trouble in the first place.

Hourly employee's do not "hire" people to work for them. Which is how the industry gets done. It'll be interesting to see how it all work out, though.

I agree that hiring all part timers maybe an impossible route to go, but that’s really the only real option they have. Changing their current business model I don’t see them doing, their businesses will shirk because of not having the reach they once had with misusing and misclassification of Independant contractors. At one point these companies will be made to hire part-time employees and may only cover very small areas. But then they may also create these mini regionals all over the area and then we have the whole subbing to subs going on, the cycle of subbing continues on. One way to eliminate a lot of this is have a national
Industry standard and professional licensing requirements, I saw a post months ago about that I have to agree with that person’s post, thick about how many got into this industry, was because there is very little self investment required , some companies don’t even require aspen Grove numbers, even a post on Facebook group about a company hired an another independent contractor to do work , sent the work orders with no contracts to sign or a background check, nothing . Also some of these overseas processing companies are now starting businesses here to directly compete with the others as those processors see the cost of jobs and being paid out, beats getting $5.00 a day in some of these South-Eastern Asia companies , like Bangladesh. Stricter Regulations are probably going to be next on the horizon, as more of these misclassification law suits start coming forward ? Only a matter of time, what’s really interesting is where these Law suits are taking place , one of the most liberal states in the union, California.

That’s what the large box retailers do I my area , they hire large amount of part time staff and only
Have a few full timers and no one gets more then 25 hours a week at most places, maybe more but they find ways to cut you back. I think it will fully eliminate the order mill business model thou, no more of those businesses and I’m seeing more and more people start educating themselves on the industry jargon about what a “MOM” mortgage order mill and see why would they want ro work for the MOM’s when they can be direct with many of the nationals and no need to further away from the main source of the money, but that to doesn’t mean anything as people like NFN has proved that.
