  1. Hi, a bit of a strange situation has come up. I have been paying a couple to work for me and two other neighbors for a year as full-time employees. I did all the CAJA and INS filings and payments. I had a falling out with one of the neighbors and they want to put them on contract for two days a week. This is going to mean that I'm only going to have them on part-time. (ie. 3 days a week). How is this going to affect their CAJA and INS payment? I think the neighbor is going to avoid registering them as employees and make their CAJA and INS become the couple's personal responsibility. They are going to be "contractors". Is the monthly minimum of 257,920 colones per month going to apply for their CAJA calculations even though they are part-time? How do I ensure that this neighbor pays their fair share of the CAJA? No more than fair. Just the correct amount. I'm worried that the couple is not going to be protected correctly under INS or CAJA for their health care or retirement. Thanks
