In recent years we have seen a significant crackdown by government regulators on the misclassification of employees as independent contractors, both on the state and federal levels. Just last year, we watched as FedEx agreed to pay a whopping $228 million to drivers in California after a long-fought court battle, which represents one of the largest misclassification settlements, ever. So how can employers avoid becoming the latest company to find themselves battling costly misclassification charges?
After viewing this webinar you will:
Have a better understanding of the differences between employees and independent contractors, including the legal definitions under the FLSA;
Get a brief overview of previous cases involving the misclassification of employees; and
Come away with best practices on how to correctly classify employees.
