Listen to the Webinar

In this webinar, we identify the issues and address the questions surrounding classification of workers, including:

  • Who is an independent contractor?
  • How will the Department of Labor's increased budget heighten enforcement?
  • What are the 10 most frequent mistakes made when classifying employees and independent contractors?
  • What are the consequences and potential exposure for employee misclassification?
  • What can be done to avoid exposure?

It is apparent that the Department of Labor is convinced that the number of reported independent contractors, more than 8 percent of the workforce, is inaccurate as a result of employers misclassifying employees. The DOL's increased enforcement means there is an immediate need for employers to ensure their worker classification practices are in compliance.
