Today's employers must be aware of the complex compliance issues relating to the proper classification of employees versus independent contractors. The IRS plans to flag employers for audit should they issue both a 1099 and W-2 to the same identification number in the same year. The result is that worker classification audits are frequent and often costly for business clients, both in terms of time as well as money expended.
This CPE webinar prepares tax practitioners to assist their clients with worker classification audits, and to avoid them if possible, by discussing and explaining the circumstances under which workers will most likely be characterized as employees or as independent contractors. This session is designed to help practitioners understand the dangers of classifying a worker as an independent contractor, when they really are an employee. You will also learn how to analyze each type of worker’s job duties to determine whether the DOL, IRS, etc. will likely determine that the worker is an employee.
This session is a must for anyone who does not have extensive experience with Labor department audits or FLSA lawsuits. This is relevant both for your own accounting firm, but also to make sure your clients are properly classifying workers.
