This training will discuss the legal differences between employees and independent contractors and advise you on how to stay compliant with applicable law. You will also learn ways to minimize risk when using independent contractors.
Why Should You Attend:
Failure to comply can be costly and getting the classification between employees and independent contractors right is good policy. The Department of Labor and the IRS appear to be cracking down on employers who characterize persons who are lawfully employees as contractors. Employers who mis-classify could be exposed to significant liability.
This webinar will discuss the IRS’ 11 point test and other criteria used to classify workers and clarify the distinctions between employees and contractors. Also, you will be provided with tools to use in classifying your workers as employees or contractors. It may be particularly helpful for small businesses without HR Departments.
At the end of this session, the speaker will handle your specific questions and address any challenges you have/had in understanding the legal differences between employees and contractors.
