Employer misclassification videos

The Department has new videos about worker mis-classification — mistakenly employing someone as an independent contractor rather than as an employee for unemployment purposes.

The original mis-classfication website is still available and very much worth checking out by employers and employees to see whether someone really is an employee under the various tests for workers’ compensation, labor standards, unemployment, and discrimination law.

For a gander at legal strategy employers should consider, especially when the independent contractor issue is being litigated in an employee benefits hearing (as opposed to an employer tax hearing), see this prior post.
