Title:

Compliance In The Gig Economy: How To Reduce Risk Of DOL Scrutiny For FLSA And Other Violations Regarding Contingent Workers

SKU:WC-1023698
Date / Time: Recorded
Format: Webinar
Order:Qty:
Description:

It’s estimated that one-third of the nation’s workers are independent contractors, freelancers, or temps. The Equal Employment Opportunity Commission has made it a priority to protect the rights of this group of workers, given what it calls the “increasing complexity of employment relationships and structures.”

Employers must also be careful to properly classify workers in order to properly comply with Internal Revenue Service and Department of Labor rules and avoid costly penalties, back taxes, and interest.

Join us for an in-depth webinar on how employers can navigate the gig economy and ensure compliance when hiring freelancers. You’ll gain a clearer picture of what your responsibilities are regarding “gig” workers and independent contractors, temps, freelancers and how to avoid legal missteps that could trigger a DOL or other federal investigation.

Learning Objectives:

  • General classification parameters under federal regulations for the independent workforce—temps, freelancers, independent contractors
  • Legal and economic obligations under federal laws, such as the FLSA and other statutes
  • Joint employers’ obligations with respect to gig workers
  • How to ensure that civil rights protections are afforded to temporary workers as well as to the regular workforce
  • Best practices for avoiding missteps that could trigger a lawsuit or audit by the DOL or another governmental agency into your practices
  • Tips for complying with the FLSA and, if applicable, MSPA regulations regarding temporary workers
  • And much more!

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.
