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

Webinar: ID# 1023698
Recorded On-Demand
About This Course:
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!
