Independent Contractor Classification: What To Do And Not Do After Uber
|Date / Time:
Many businesses today are either supplementing their workforce by the use of independent contractors or have developed a business model that is dependent on ICs rendering services to the company or its customers.
Most of those are failing to structure, document, or implement these IC relationships in a manner that complies with applicable federal and state IC laws. This exposes such companies to substantial IC misclassification liability risk.
This webinar will help those persons whose job it is to avoid lawsuits and retain hard-earned profits from placing their companies at peril for costly IC misclassification liability.
Many IC relationships can be restructured, re-documented, and re-implemented in a manner that enhances compliance with relevant IC laws.
But IC compliance is counter-intuitive. It may be a matter of dotting your "i"s and crossing your "t"s but it is not readily apparent where the "i"s and "t"s are.
This course will sensitize you to understanding what it takes to step up your company's game to not just counteract lawsuits and regulatory enforcement initiatives but to avoid them altogether. And if your company has been sued or is in the middle of an audit or had a determination that you have misclassified workers as ICs, this information will give you guidance on whether your company can get itself into compliance without having to reclassify those workers as employees.

|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.
