Improperly Classifying Employees As Independent Contractors
According to the U.S. Department of Labor, “The misclassification of employees as something other than employees, such as independent contractors, presents a serious problem for affected employees, employers, and to the entire economy. Misclassified employees are often denied access to critical benefits and protections — such as family and medical leave, overtime, minimum wage and unemployment insurance — to which they are entitled. Employee misclassification also generates substantial losses to the Treasury and the Social Security and Medicare funds, as well as to state unemployment insurance and workers’ compensation funds.”
If you are an employer and you believe that you may have misclassified an employee as an independent contractor, please contact our office and discuss the matter with an experienced employment law attorney.
