ABC Webinar ~ The Assault on Independent Contractors
Please join, Partners, Thomas Lenz and Cindy Arellano as they discuss the employment of independent contractors and the issues that may arise.
Employment lawyers, public agencies, taxing authorities and the courts have taken an aggressive view that individuals classified as independent contractors are, instead, employees. As many employers have discovered, the rule of law may run contrary to what is agreed to, and memorialized, in written agreements. The issue affects wage and hour, individual employment rights, worker’s compensation proceedings, union organizing, and compliance with tax laws. We will discuss the tests used by courts and agencies, the attacks upon alleged misclassification and ‘wage theft,’ as well as steps management can take to limit potential exposure.
This webinar is designed to:
Identify classification issues.
Provide the pros and cons of using the independent contractors.
Share the criteria used by the IRS for purposes of classification.
Share the key differences between independent contractors and employees.
