TH109 - Employee vs. Independent Contractor. Why It Matters to Employers

Thursday, January 23 from 8:30 AM to 10:00 AM | Room N232, North Hall, Las Vegas Convention Center « Back

NEW FOR 2014  Government spending is up; tax revenues are down.  IRS agents are working harder to collect what employers owe.  Employers in the construction industry also have to worry about DOL stepping in to enforce overtime obligations that might not otherwise apply to an independent contractor.  I-9, worker comp, insurance benefits, retirement liability – the list goes on.  “Misclassification" can become enormously expensive.  The entire concrete industry needs to understand the difference between employees and contractors.  We will explore the different tests used by the government agencies, as well as the consequences of noncompliance.

  1. Describe the difference between how employees and contractors should be classified.
  2. Define problems and potentially enormous liabilities that can arise from the misclassification of employees.
  3. Outline what to expect when dealing with government agencies.
  4. Identify workers that are misclassified and how to change their classification.
