Independent Contractor Workshop

SKU:WT-1000684
Format: Webinar
Description:

If you classify any workers as "independent contractors”—or have plans to do so—now is the time to make sure you get that classification correct.

A massive new "Misclassification Initiative” launched by the IRS and U.S. Department of Labor is targeting employers with more audits and closer scrutiny. The IRS estimates that 80% of workers classified as "independent contractors” are actually employees.

As part of the crackdown, the DOL hired 100 new auditors solely to investigate misclassifications. State investigators are also turning up the heat on employers. And all this attention is prompting more independent contractors—and their attorneys—to challenge their classifications in court.

What to do? Now is the time to understand this issue once and for all—and get in compliance. Join us for Independent Contractor Workshop. Our timely webinar will teach you:


  • How to create foolproof independent contractor relationships that meet IRS, DOL and state agency requirements
  • The benefits of using independent contractors (same work, lower costs, fewer hassles) and the inherent risks (reclassifications leading to huge tax, wage and benefit payments)
  • Why the feds are cracking down now, what they're looking for and how you can achieve compliance
  • The key factors the DOL and IRS consider (and you should, too) in making classification decisions
  • The IRS test, the so-called "Darden Factors” and the "Economic Realities” standard
  • Important court cases, including the infamous FedEx case, that help draw a brighter line between contractors and employees
  • The 8 steps you should take to create legally safe dealings with independent contractors
  • When you can have a "joint employer” relationship with a contracting agency—and what to be aware of
  • Plus, answers to YOUR questions about independent contractor issues
Independent contractor status can save you big on taxes and benefits. But you must get those classifications right—now more than ever!

The federal government predicts its new crackdown on employee misclassification will reap at least $7 billion in federal revenue over the next 10 years. Don't become a notch on the IRS' belt! Discover your compliance mistakes now—before the feds do—and learn how to manage your independent contractors legally.
