  • (1888PressRelease) December 13, 2021 - Event Summary:
    The flexible work arrangement has become a norm in the post-pandemic time, presenting hurdles among company decision-makers when it comes to employee classification. Misclassifying an employee as an independent contractor can pose legal risks to employers including liability claims related to employment taxes, interest, and penalties.

    While the Fair Labor Standards Act (FLSA) holds established factors in determining employee status, the Internal Revenue Service (IRS) also uses its standards for evaluation with an emphasis on the behavioral, financial, and relational details. Thus, stiffer fines and criminal penalties await employers who committed fraudulent or intentional misclassification. These developments underscore the need for company executives to be well-versed with the different factors or legal standards in classifying workers to mitigate misclassification liabilities and other legal risks.

    Join a panel of key thought leaders and professionals assembled by The Knowledge Group as they provide a comprehensive discussion of the existing regulations, emerging developments, and notable cases involving independent contractor misclassification. Speakers will also offer practical tips and compliance strategies to mitigate potential risks in this evolving legal landscape.

    Key topics include:
    - Independent Contractor Misclassification: Challenges and Pitfalls
    - Determining Employee Status: Demystifying the IRS Factors
    - Practical Tips and Strategies
    - Notable and Latest Cases and Legislative Developments
    - What Lies Ahead?
