The U.S. Department of Labor issued guidance in July alerting employers that “most workers are employees” under the Fair Labor Standards Act, and reminding employers that the correct classification of workers as employees or independent contractors has critical implications for workers’ legal protections and employers’ obligations.

In this webinar we will examine the potential implications of worker misclassification and the steps employers can take to ensure they are correctly classifying their employees.

Topics

  • Minimum wage and overtime implications
  • Employee benefits and retirement plan eligibility
  • Federal and state tax reporting and withholding requirements
  • Applicability of notice and reporting requirements under the ACA and other benefits laws
