Asking for a friend. A Canadian university wants to hire me as a remote employee. I'll be working in Los Angeles. My annual salary is $60000 in 2020, and would be more in 2021.
Which of these things is the university liable for?
- Social Security, Medicare, and FUTA
- obligations such as paid sick leave or unpaid time off for pregnancy
- withholding California state income tax? They and I would prefer they withhold Canada federal and provincial tax instead as I have to file a nonresident Canadian return
I have emplyment authorization both in Canada and the US so that will not be an issue.
