The risks involved in misclassifying a worker as an independent contractor rather than an employee have always been serious. A number of federal and state agencies regulate the proper classification of workers and have the authority to impose significant monetary and non-monetary sanctions against employers who get the classification wrong.
This informative webinar will cover the legal landscape of independent contractor status. Topics will include:
A summary of the various tests applied by federal and state agencies to determine independent contractor status;
A summary of the enforcement authority of various federal and state agencies and the sanctions they may impose on employers;
The due diligence employers must engage in before classifying a worker as an independent contractor;
The federal Department of Labor’s $25 million “Misclassification Initiative” designed to work closely with state agencies to investigate misclassifications and take enforcement action; and
California’s law imposing monetary and non-monetary sanctions against employers (and certain individuals) who willfully misclassify workers as independent contractors.
