Course Description

This programs examines what happens when a business misclassifies workers as consultants or independent contractors (anything other than employees), when under federal or state law they should have been treated as employees of the business. The instructors examine the risks of misclassification and provide an in depth review of the criteria utilized by various government agencies to determine classification. They also review enforcement issues and discuss current cases which address this highly charged employment law area. In addition, they provide an example of an Independent Contractor Agreement and address the main points which should be included.
