This program will examine the criteria used by government agencies in determining when a worker is an employee and when he or she is a contractor. Participants will learn clear guidelines for proper classification of employees.

Why should you attend: In recent years, the IRS and the Department of Labor have been somewhat more vigorous in prosecuting employers who have misclassified employees as contractors. Employees are entitled to by law minimum wage and in many instances overtime pay, as well as fringe benefits in some instances. Contractors have no such protection. In addition, employers withhold taxes for employees, while contractors pay their own taxes.

Misclassification of employees as contractors can lead to severe penalties from the government, not to mention an intrusive and burdensome investigation. Understanding the rules will help your company avoid misclassifying its workers.

Areas Covered in the Session:
  • The 11 factor and 20 factor test applied by the IRS
  • The cost differentials between contractors and employees
  • Issues arising from leasing employ
  • Requirements that business may impose on contractors

Who Will Benefit:
  • HR Directors
  • Persons administering COBRA benefits
  • Personnel involved in labor and employment matters
