Distinguishing between independent contractors and employees has never been an easy task. While the consequences for getting it wrong have always been significant, the stakes just got higher. The Federal government has allocated $25 million and 100 new investigators to detect and deter inappropriately classified independent contractors and they project that this effort will raise $7 billion from employers over the next decade. Come refresh your understanding about the rules regarding independent contractor classification, understand the way penalties are calculated, learn some practical how-to's that will help you establish that someone is truly a contractor, and learn how to perform an internal audit to shore up your practices before you get a costly knock on your door!
