Learn Classification Requirements For Employees vs. Independent Contractors

Misclassifying employees as independent contractors is a mistake you can’t afford to make. While it may seem like a cost savings to avoid payments such as payroll taxes, unemployment tax, and health coverage, federal and state agencies are actively looking for misclassified employees—and they’ve upped the ante with fines and penalties that have skyrocketed in recent years.

Learn the requirements to properly classify your workers in this information-packed webinar presented by payroll expert Vicki Lambert. She’ll uncover the hefty penalties for misclassifying an employee as an independent contractor and who assesses your classifications. Hint: it’s not just the IRS you have to worry about!

After attending this audio event, you will know how to properly classify worker status. You’ll also know what to do if you have a misclassified employee, and you’ll understand how to lower your risk of a 1099 audit.
