Why Should You Attend:

According to the US Department of Labor, the Supreme Court has said that there is no definition that solves all problems relating to the employer-employee relationship under the Fair Labor Standards Act (FLSA). The court has also said that determination of the relationship cannot be based on isolated factors or upon a single characteristic, but depends upon the circumstances of the whole activity. The goal of the analysis is to determine the underlying economic reality of the situation and whether the individual is economically dependent on the supposed employer.

This webinar will equip employers with critical information required to determine the most appropriate status for those individuals rendering services. Other key topics to be addressed will include:

  • Audit checklist for maintaining independent contractor status
