The class was very informative, and covered many aspects of how to determine if a person is a subcontractor or should be an considered an employee. They even showed how having a person as an employee, rather than sub, could in some cased actually save your company money, as your company could be held liable for fines and taxes in some cases. A class well worth taking for any small business. Even an extra bonus they provided a notebook for business basic record keeping, a plus for organizing any business.

They were able to keep my attention throught the four hour class. I wasn't even tempted to fiddle with my phone. Can't ask for more than that.

NICA really put a lot of effort into boiling down the new GHS into an understandable and appreciable level for myself and probably the rest of the people. General consensus was that the materials provided made a lot of sense, and made GHS accessible to the average worker. Definitely worthwhile.
