Sacramento EAC – The Gig Economy & Who Are Independent Contractors
Date / Time
Wednesday, March 8, 2017
12:00 pm - 1:00 pm
The expansive growth of companies offering on-demand or “gig” services (think Lyft and Uber) has brought forth previously unconsidered legal questions pertaining to the employment status of the individuals in question. Courts across the country are pondering one major question – are the gig workers properly classified as employees or independent contractors? While the Gig Economy may be new, the risks involved in misclassifying a worker as an independent contractor rather than an employee have always been serious. This informative webinar will cover the legal landscape of independent contractor status. Topics will include:
- A summary of the various tests applied by federal and state agencies to determine independent contractor status;
- A summary of the enforcement authority of various federal and state agencies and the sanctions they may impose;
- The due diligence employers must engage in before classifying a worker as an independent contractor; and
- California’s law imposing monetary and non-monetary sanctions against employers (and other individuals) who willfully misclassify workers as independent contractors.
If you or your company is currently using independent contractors, this is a webinar you won’t want to miss. Register today!
