Webinar Series To Guide Employers On How to Classify Workers
Act as guide through the process of correctly identifying workers as employees or independent contractors
 

The U.S. Department of Labor (DOL) recently signed a memorandum of understanding (MOU) with the Internal Revenue Service (IRS) that is aimed at improving departmental efforts to end the misclassification of workers as independent contractors.  The MOU will enable DOL to share information and coordinate law enforcement with the IRS in what DOL says will “level the playing field for law-abiding employers and ensure that employees receive the protections to which they are entitled under federal and state law.” You can read more details about the MOU here.

AGC has created a series of pre-recorded webinars “Advanced Issues about Worker Misclassifications: What Every Contractor Needs to Know” to provide additional guidance on worker misclassification issues. The series of webinars will guide employers through the process of correctly identifying workers as employees or independent contractors as well as exempt or non-exempt and can be purchased from the AGC Bookstore.  Further resources are available to AGC members and chapters on AGC’s Labor & HR Topical Resources webpage under the main category “Other Legal Issues” and subcategory “Independent Contractors.”
