The Webinar will discuss methods to insure that workers classified under independent contractor agreement 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.
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.
