Posted by Julia Fournier on 5 May 2016

Bringing clarity to the issue of misclassification

If you find the whole question of independent contractor misclassification confusing – and a little unsettling – you’re not alone. How do you separate the facts from the rumors and get clarity on how to properly manage IC relationships? That’s why we created our latest whitepaper – Managing Your Independent Contractor Program.

Top talent doesn’t want a job

Most organizations realize that consultants, contract workers and freelancers are a vital source of top-quality talent that is vital to the growth of their business. But many are shying away from these workers because of the risks associated with misclassification.

They fear that aggressive action by state and federal agencies, who see misclassification as an easy way to recover lost income, will land them in hot water. And cost them a bundle in fines, back taxes, interest, overtime, benefits and more. The consequences can be devastating.

Learn how to protect your organization

This new up-to-date guide sheds light on the issues and challenges of working with independent contractors. It provides you with a clear understanding of what misclassification is all about, why litigation is on the rise and most important of all, what you can do about it.

In this guide, you’ll find answers to critical issues and key questions, providing you with what you need to know about misclassification including:

  • Why independent contractors are vital to the survival and growth of your organization
  • The main reasons why misclassification challenges are on the rise and who is being targeted (hint – it may soon be your business)
  • How auditors, investigators and agents determine if workers are contractors or employees and what to do about it
  • Three steps you can take to mitigate or eliminate your risks and protect your organization

An easy read, a comprehensive reference

There’s a lot of information out there on misclassification. A lot of it is confusing legal jargon that only muddies the waters around the key issues. This guide is written in plain English, not legalese, so it’s easy to understand the key concepts and get a full view of what’s at stake, and what you can do about it.
