Title:

Could Your Volunteers Be Deemed Employees? Avoid Worker Misclassification

SKU:WC-1020451
Date / Time: Recorded
Format: Webinar

Description:

The use of nonemployees to perform services is becoming more prevalent than ever, and challenges to these relationships are growing just as rapidly.

Federal and state agencies, as well as individuals themselves, are increasingly claiming that these services were really acts of employment and that the individuals are owed a minimum wage, overtime, reimbursement of expenses, employee benefits, and more.

Organizations that use volunteers, unpaid interns, students, and trainees to provide services are all potentially at risk. Legal claims alleging that these individuals have been misclassified and are really employees can result in dire consequences, with penalties and fines that can pose an existential threat to an organization.

Taking proactive steps now to reduce misclassification risks may involve a small amount of time and resources, but these steps can prevent substantial fines and penalties later.

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.

The live 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.
