Why Should You Attend:
Federal and state authorities have been vigorously examining independent contractor arrangements to see whether workers are actually misclassified employees entitled to certain employment law protections and tax treatment. Are you confident that all of the workers labeled as contractors would satisfy the legal tests used by those authorities? This webinar will instruct you about those tests and how they’ve been applied to distinguish between contractors and employees.
It is important for businesses to understand what makes a worker truly an independent contractor as opposed to an employee. Employees are entitled to legal protections and benefits not available to contractors. Plus, employers must pay specific payroll taxes for employees which are not required for contractors. Federal and state authorities are keenly interested in making sure that employers have properly classified their workers.
This webinar will teach you the legal distinction between employees and contractors as well as the factors federal and state authorities use to determine who is truly a contractor. You will also learn about recent trends in states such as California and New Jersey to make it harder for employers to establish contractor status.
