Upcoming WEBINAR: Saying It’s So, Doesn’t Make it So: Independent Contractor v. Employee Status

Posted in Employment Contracts and Agreements, Labor Law, New Legislation and Regulations, Wage & Hour

Summary of Program

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.
