Course Description

This online webinar is designed to help HR professionals, CPAs and business owners 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. Get updated on the Trump DOL’s new Independent Contractor test, and how that stands now with a Biden presidency.

We review examples of scenarios that can trigger an independent contractor audit and the penalties that can be assessed if the worker is determined to be misclassified. To complete the course, we discuss various examples of state regulations as they pertain to worker classification.  This online continuing education course serves as a sound basis to assist human resources, payroll, or finance professionals in determining how to properly classify a worker as an independent contractor.
