Tailoring Your Contracts to Avoid Misclassification - New rules of thumb in worker classification for 2020 and beyond DESCRIPTION: Uber, Lyft and other “Gig Economy” businesses have experienced huge success in the new millennium. A big part of the reason why is that they classify a large majority of their workers as independent contractors. But that business model is in danger. Many states are attacking the worker classification model, asking courts to mandate that their workers, usually drivers, are classified as employees. • Are you a food delivery service, or other business involved in the Gig Economy?• Do you treat large classes of workers as independent contractors? If so, it would do you well to understand the independent contractor rules and regulations and the simplified tests involved in classification. On the federal side, you can request a determination that prevents auditors from reclassifying your workers for you. There are also provisions that limit your liability if you want to reclassify them yourself. PRIORITY:3END:VEVENT END:VCALENDAR
