WEBINAR: What’s the Difference Between an Independent Contractor and an Employee?

Although your business might have independent contractors and employees performing the same or similar work, there are vitally important legal differences between the two. To avoid exposing your company to the possibility of significant fines and costly lawsuits, it is critical that you know when to classify a worker as an independent contractor and when to classify a worker as an employee. 

Unfortunately, the “independent contractor vs. worker” question can be quite complicated.

Join us at this webinar to learn how to determine if a worker is an independent contractor or an employee, and how this designation impacts everything from tax withholding to the application of employment and labor laws.
