Employee or Indepedent Contractor?
The Stakes Are Higher Now
presented by James J. McDonald, Jr.

 

The California Supreme Court’s Dynamex decision re-shaped the landscape of California law regarding proper classification of independent contractors. This presentation will explain the new “ABC” test announced by the court to determine whether contractors are properly classified. The program will also highlight the exposure that can result from improperly classifying employees as contractors, including wage and hour liability, unemployment and withholding tax audits, and civil penalties.

Learning Objectives:

  1. Learn how the new Dynamex test differs from the old test for determining whether independent contractors are properly classified.
  2. Learn the risks of having improperly classified contractors.
  3. Learn alternatives for using independent contractors to meet increased demand.
