misclassifying independent contractors

Webinar on Thursday, September 15, 2016.

Have you designated your California worker as an independent contractor or employee, and do you know the difference under California law?

These are multimillion-dollar questions as class action “misclassification” lawsuits continue to rise at the federal and state levels. It’s not just unhappy workers igniting the firestorm. Both the U.S. Department of Labor and California’s Labor Commissioner are on the lookout for violations, ramping up their enforcement efforts.

“Misclassification mistakes in California can be costly, exposing employers to fines and penalties for failing to pay minimum wage and overtime, for missed meal and rest breaks, and for failing to provide workers’ compensation coverage,” notes Erika Frank, Vice President, Legal Affairs, and General Counsel for CalChamber.

Join CalChamber’s employment law experts as they review independent contractor status, legal obligations, recent court cases, penalties, best practices and more.
