GigSmart is the fastest, most cost-effective way to find insured and background-checked temporary Workers. You can create free Gig postings to start sourcing skilled Workers in minutes. To get started, create your free hiring account from your web browser or by downloading our native iOS or Android Get Workers mobile apps. Once you have created an account, you can post Gigs from which our pool of Workers can apply. You are in charge of setting the hourly rate and frequency by which your Gigs are available. In addition, you can utilize our Staffing Support team to help you fill your vacant shifts. If you need help creating your first Gig posting or would like more information, please contact us, and we will be happy to assist you.

You do not need to provide 1099-MISC forms to Workers. Payment is made to Workers electronically through the GigSmart platform. Therefore, a 1099-K is issued by your payment settlement agency (credit card, debit card, PayPal). For certain third party network transactions, the payment processor only has to issue a 1099-K if the total amount of such transactions exceeds $20,000 or the aggregate number of transactions exceeds 200. Since Workers are 1099-K, the expense should be labeled in the “Outside Services” expense category within your accounting software (Quickbooks, etc.). The expense should not be recorded in the 1099-MISC section of your accounting system since these Workers received payment electronically as outlined above. For more information, please visit the IRS website.
