Overview: The Webinar will discuss methods to insure that workers classified as independent contractors are independent. With the push by the US Department of Labor to clamp down on misclassification of employees as independent contractors it is important for companies to make sure they have everyone classified correctly. Under the Affordable Care Act many employers have thought about using independent contractors more to avoid having to offer healthcare. |
It is not that easy. Upon completion of this session, attendees will learn key factors that would determine how a worker is properly classified as "independent." The attendee will learn what they can and cannot do when dealing with independent contractors to accomplish work.
Why should you attend: Companies that use independent contractors to perform aspects of the business want to insure that these workers are truly independent. Making a mistake can cause companies to have to reclassify workers as employees and subsequently be required to pay back taxes and penalties. Human Resources managers, Office Managers, and small and mid-size business owners need to be aware of the issues involved.
Areas Covered in the Session: Who can be independent? Definitions What does independent mean? The IRS classifications State regulations The issue of workers compensation What happens when an Independent Contractor files for unemployment
