Why Should You Attend:

Converse to the high overhead when employing an employee, when contracting with independent contractors, a principal’s overhead costs are relatively low. That’s because when contracting with an independent contractor, the principal is not responsible for providing the laundry list of protections it must provide in an employer-employee relationship.


Many principals, especially small business owners, are tempted to erroneously dub a service provider as an independent contractor in an effort to avoid paying for and managing the laundry list of legal protections afforded to employees.

But, as this webinar will discuss, misclassifying an employee as an independent contractor- especially to avoid providing the list of legal protections to a service provider- could have costly and dire ramifications.

  • Who is an independent contractor?
  • The advantages of contracting with an independent contractor
  • Understanding that protection of service providers is a matter of public policy
  • How to determine whether a service provider is an independent contractor or an employee
  • Statutory presumptions of employment status
  • The ramifications of misclassifying an employee as an independent contractor
  • Reporting requirements when engaging an independent contractor
  • Liability for conduct toward and by an independent contractor
  • Indemnification of staffing agencies

Who Will Benefit:

  • Supervisors
  • General counsel
  • Payroll professionals
  • Human resources personnel
  • Accounting personnel
  • Business owners
  • Lawmakers
  • Attorneys
  • All California employers
