Course Description

Worker classification can be ambiguous and confusing. Classify your workers as independent contractors when they’re actually employees, and you’ll get hit with penalties.

That’s why it’s important to stay up-to-date with the latest independent contractor guidelines like the withdrawal of the 2021 new DOL rule.

On May 5th, 2021, the Department of Labor withdrew the “Independent Contractor Status under the Fair Labor Standards Act (FLSA)” final rule, which went into effect immediately on May 6th, 2021. This final ruling clarifies the standard for classification by determining whether an individual is in business for themselves or is economically dependent on an employer for work.

What’s the big deal about worker classification?

Correctly classifying your workers as employees or independent contractors impacts everything from taxes to benefits.

Whereas employees are on your payroll, independent contractors are not. Contractors are responsible for paying their own taxes and providing their own benefits, like insurance. And, the Fair Labor Standards Act (FLSA) covers eligible employees—not contractors—under minimum wage and overtime laws.

In this practical CPE webinar speaker, Cynthia Flynn will discuss employee classification and the use of independent contractors in the age of AB5 and the Department of Labor’s most recent rulings. Legislation and court rulings have reshaped California's worker classification landscape in an attempt to make compliance easier for employers.
