    Penny Wise and Pound Foolish:  Worker Misclassification

    and How to Stay Ahead of the Curve

    Are you properly classifying workers as independent contractors?  Up to 30% of employers misclassify workers, and the revenue loss to US Treasury is more than $3 billion, annually. Agencies across the employment spectrum are effectively coordinating and identifying misclassified workers, and seeking immense penalties from companies.  Join us for a conversation about evolving agency initiatives, the various “tests” for contractor status, and a host of practical solutions to address these important issues.
