WARNING: An increasing number of government agencies are targeting the misclassification of workers as independent contractors, including the U.S. Dept. of Labor, IRS, and the unemployment insurance division of the Arizona Department of Economic Security.
Is it even possible to use independent contractors in today’s legal environment? Julie Pace, an expert in employment law with the Cavanagh Law Firm, will teach members how to properly classify and utilize independent contractors, and how to take proactive steps to protect your company in the event of an audit.
She will also discuss other changes in employment law, including what the new Employer Bill of Rights contains that is especially beneficial for small-business owners.
