The webinar will discuss methods to insure that workers classified as independent contractors are independent. With the push by the US Department of Labor to clamp down on misclassification of employees as independent contractors it is important for companies to make sure they have everyone classified correctly.
Under the Affordable Care Act, many employers have thought about using independent contractors more to avoid having to offer healthcare. It is not that easy.
Companies that use an independent contractor to perform aspects of the business want to insure that these workers are truly independent. Making a mistake in managing independent contractors can cause companies to have to reclassify workers as employees and subsequently be required to pay back taxes and penalties.
Human Resources managers, Office Managers, and small and mid-size business owners need to be aware of the issues involved like independent contractor payment schedule, independent contractor taxes and independent contractor insurance.
• Why the proper definition is needed
• IRS definition of an independent contractor
• Department of Labor definition
• What is a statutory employee
• State difference
• What is needed for managing independent contractors

Upon completion of this human resources training, attendees will learn key factors that would determine how a worker is properly classified as “independent.” The attendees will learn what they can and cannot do when managing independent contractors to accomplish work.
