Worker Classifications – Hot Legal Issues (3-27-14 Webinar Recording)

Proper classification of workers is at the heart of employment law compliance.  Misclassifying workers often leads to violation of a wide range of legal requirements, triggering government audits and/or “class action” litigation filed on behalf of all misclassified workers.  Ambiguous, and often misunderstood, classification standards make it very easy for employers to make mistakes when classifying workers.

Watch this recorded webinar for a detailed review and update on key worker classification issues under California and federal employment laws, including:

  • “Exempt” versus “Non-Exempt”
  • “Employee” versus “Contractor”
  • Employee Benefits Eligibility Classifications
  • Rare Applicability of Intern & Volunteer Statuses
  • Consequences of Misclassification
  • Corrective Actions
