Independent Contractor vs. Employee – How to Ensure Compliance
Hosted by: MyCare Alliance
Guest Speaker: Jennifer Wheatley, President of HR Affiliates

The most basic question about the employment relationship is whether a worker is an employee or an independent contractor. As with so many employment law issues, the answer is that it depends. Unfortunately, it’s not always clear. However, it is extremely important to your business and can have unfortunate consequences if a misclassification occurs. Employee status triggers employer obligations under various federal and state laws that do not apply to independent contractors, and the responsibility for classifying a worker correctly falls squarely on the employer. Business owners need to understand the practical and legal differences between employees and independent contractors.
