Gain a better understanding on how to develop the skills necessary to revise policies, practices, and procedures to ensure compliance with both federal and state requirements.

Many employers have individuals classified as independent contractors who are more properly classified as employees. Federal and state agencies, and private attorneys through wage and hour class action lawsuits, actively prosecute and litigate companies for these errors.

Improperly classifying employees can lead to a multitude of issues -- from the failure to pay overtime to improperly paying taxes. This topic will give employers the tools necessary to properly identify and classify individuals who work with their organizations. This material will also provide employers with the ability to draft policies that protect their intellectual property and branding without creating additional employment liabilities.

This information is critical for employers to develop the skills necessary to revise their policies, practices, and procedures to ensure compliance with both federal and state requirements.
