Independent Contractor vs. Employee: Classify Your Nonprofit Staff Correctly
|Date / Time:
The use of nonemployee workers is more prevalent than ever, and challenges to these relationships are growing just as rapidly. The Internal Revenue Service (IRS), the Department of Labor, the National Labor Relations Board, state governments, and the plaintiffs' bar have made it a priority in 2016 to attack the legitimacy of independent contractor relationships, claiming that many of these workers are really employees.
Is your nonprofit organization exposed?
This webinar explores the legal risks of using independent contractors and provides tips for avoiding misclassification claims. The material examines the various types of tests used to determine whether a worker is properly classified and explores the consequences of a finding that a contractor is really an employee.
Learn how bad outcomes happen and how they snowball into worse outcomes. Learn how an unemployment claim can become a million dollar liability - and how to avoid it.

|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.

presenter and from the "MyAccount" link on the menu bar. Copies of the presentations are included with recorded versions.
