The Internship/Temporary Work Agreement has been revised to include the following bolded statements:
The Employer of Record maintains these responsibilities ONLY: Distribute funds to the DVR Consumer/Employee in accordance with the payroll schedule, maintain Worker’s Compensation Insurance for the DVR Consumer/Employee, withhold all applicable taxes and deposit all taxes withheld to the appropriate taxing authority and will resolve paycheck issues that may arise with the DVR Consumer/Employee.
The Employer of Record's responsibilities have not changed, but "maintains these responsibilities ONLY" was added to ensure that all involved parties are aware of what the Employer of Record service includes.
The second update is on Page 2 under The Site Employer section:
Will provide work activity limited to the activities described in the position description, start/end date specified, and the schedule included on this form corresponding to the total hours authorized. If a schedule change is made that will change the total hours authorized, the I/TW provider should notify DVR.
The additional language was added to ensure DVR consumers are only responsible for duties stated within the position description of the Internship/Temporary Work Agreement.
Please begin using the updated Internship/Temporary Work Agreement for all Internship/Temporary experiences going forward.
