Independent Contractor or Employee: Classify Your Non-Profit Workers Correctly
|Date / Time:
|Order:||Qty: Select State: |
Many non-profit entities classify workers as independent contractors or employees without understanding the differences between the two under federal and state laws, without appreciating that different agencies apply different definitions and standards and that, perhaps, there may be a safe harbor for their practices.
The patchwork of laws and regulations plus heightened scrutiny by regulators creates uncertainty and puts employers at risk of fines, penalties and back tax assessments by regulators and claims to back wages and benefits by employees.
This webinar will assist the persons responsible for classification to understand and logically group the federal and state criteria, and how to apply the various standards to their organizations.
This webinar also will teach the participants how to determine if a safe harbor for independent contractor classification applies and, if so, what steps should be taken to preserve the protection, as improper classification can lead to forced reclassification of groups of workers, payment of associated back income and employment taxes, fines and penalties and potential claims by employees for back wages and benefits.

|About Webcasts / Audio Conferences / Podcasts:|
Webcasts, audio conferences, and podcasts are presentations that you
attend via the Internet, phone, or mobile device at a specified date and time for "live" versions, or at your convenience for "recorded" and "On-Demand" versions.
versions are interactive, meaning that participants can ask questions in real time, plus are a very cost-effective form of training because 1) you receive fast, convenient learning without
any out-of-office time; 2) you can invite as many colleagues as you'd like to listen in on a single phone line; 3) you incur no travel expenses; and 4) you and your colleagues are back
at work immediately after the session ends!
And though with recorded versions you do lose the ability to ask questions, you gain the ability to hear the presentation numerous
times and to share it with others in your office.
Handout materials and the phone number for live presentations are made available to you prior to the event via email from the
presenter and from the "MyAccount" link on the menu bar. Copies of the presentations are included with recorded versions.
