Independent Reality: The New Law of Contractor Status

APPROVED By HRCI for 1.0 General Credit Hours

EMPLOYEE OR INDEPENDENT CONTRACTOR?

That’s the million dollar question.

The U.S. Department of Labor and the IRS have made misclassification of independent contractors a top enforcement priority, and you can be hit for back taxes, overtime pay, workers compensation and retirement benefits.

And if you think you’re in compliance, think again. Recent court cases continue to redefine this complex and confusing subject.

SO HOW CAN YOU PROTECT YOUR FIRM?

Start by attending this 60-minute Terra Staffing webcast.

Michael Droke, Labor and Employment Co-Department Head at Dorsey & Whitney Law Firm in Seattle, WA will show you appropriate strategies for properly classifying and managing independent contractors. He will also discuss L&I’s enforcement program and what to expect if you are audited.

Mike is a “fan favorite” and always receives rave reviews from webcast and workshop attendees for providing clear guidance in an entertaining and enlightening format.
