Live Webinar on
Independent Contractors in Today's Economy: Proper Classification and the Risks of Misclassification
Date & Time: Thursday, February 16, 2012 Duration: 60 Minutes Location: Online Overview:
This webinar is focused on classification of independent contractors in an economic environment where misclassification is currently being viewed as a revenue source by government agencies that are struggling to meet budget challenges.
In this webinar, you'll learn about those tests in the context of the current economic environment, best practices for entering into and maintaining independent contractor relationships, and the potential scope of penalties if you get it wrong. You'll also find out about some recent litigation and investigative activity and the financial toll those cases took on the businesses involved. Deciding whether to classify someone as a contractor or employee isn't always easy but this webinar can help you along the way and, at the same time, increase your appreciation of the need to pay very close attention to these issues.
Why you should attend:
Every business has to classify their workers as employees or independent contractors. When it comes to independent contractor classifications, the path is not always clear and if you get it wrong, penalties are severe. So it's important to understand the tests that are used to determine contractor status and how to maintain that status once it's been established. Government agencies, both federal and state, have been stepping up their enforcement efforts and mechanisms for the past several years and particularly since 2009. The time has come for every business to take another look at their workforce and to make sure things have been done correctly. Best practices for risk management require it.
