FOCUS ON WHAT YOU LOVE.

Wave goodbye to hiring and HR hassles.

Employing people is stressful. As a business owner, you're responsible for hiring people, dealing with HR issues, unemployment and workers comp claims, payroll, and compliance laws.

Band of Hands takes this stress away.

AVOID GETTING HIT WITH FINES.

Compliance is essential. Easily convert your 1099s to W-2.

Employment laws are complex. California is cracking down. If you're classifying your fitness professionals as independent contractors (as opposed to employees), you'll be hit with potential legal and financial consequences, such as unpaid wages and benefits, fines, penalties, and in extreme cases, being shut down.

With Band of Hands, it's simple. We convert your contract workers to W-2, so you're fully protected.
