What’s the difference between an employee and an independent contractor? What do you need to know when hiring and paying someone to work for your organization? If you fail to correctly classify people who work for you, you may be liable for significant penalties for unpaid withholding and Social Security taxes as well as State and Federal unemployment insurance contributions, disability, and workers' compensation. In this workshop, we’ll review the rules, and talk about how they affect you. We’ll go over Internal Revenue Service rules and guidelines for worker classification, Department of Labor rules and guidelines for worker classification, the interaction between IRS and DOL, union rules, IRS and DOL audits, remedial action, and how worker classification affects workers’ compensation insurance. You are invited to bring in your cases and questions for discussion.
