A Webinar From Replicon & Littler: The Perils of Misclassifying Contract Labor

 The Perils of Misclassifying Contract Labor

Many companies rely on contingent workers and/or joint employment of workers to temporarily augment their workforce due to seasonal or cyclical variations in their business. As the US Department of Labor (DoL) steps up enforcement of Fair Labor Standards Act (FLSA) regulations, employers need to be aware of—and compliant with—the regulations surrounding contract labor.

On February 6th, Replicon again teamed up with Littler Mendelson, the largest global employment and labor law firm, to present a webinar with attorney and compliance expert Brian Dixon, co-chair of Littler’s Wage and Hour Practice Group.

Brian explained the legal distinctions between employees, interns, and volunteers, and what factors distinguish these types of workers. He also talked about how different states classified various aspects of joint employment and the use of independent contractors, and provided valuable tips on how employers could navigate these employment scenarios.

Webinar participants learned about:

  • How to correctly classify independent contractors
  • How to manage independent contractor relationships
  • The legal rights of contractors, and applicable tax guidelines
  • How to reduce compliance risk
  • What criteria apply to joint employment

Attendees to this webinar also had the chance to earn HR Certification Institute recertification credit.
