Description
Distinguishing between Independent Contractors and Employees has never been an easy task for employers. And while the consequences for getting it wrong have always been significant, the stakes just got higher. The Federal government has allocated $25 million and 100 new investigators to "detect and deter inappropriately classified independent contractors," and they project that this effort will raise $7 billion from employers over the next decade. They mean business…

In California, recent legislation has not only increased fines and penalties, but created other unpleasant and costly consequences for employers. Not surprisingly, audits are on the rise, and the outcome has not been great for employers. Now, more than ever, employers need to audit their own practices instead of waiting for a government agency to audit them.

Come refresh your understanding about the rules regarding independent contractor classification, understand the way penalties are calculated, learn some practical how-to's that will help you establish that someone is truly a contractor, and hear some real-life audit horror stories that you want to avoid at all cost!

Learning Objectives:
• A detailed review of the various government agency rules regarding independent contractor vs. employee classification.
• An explanation of how audits are triggered and how penalties are calculated.
• The pros and cons of participating in the IRS’s current amnesty program.
• How to take advantage of other government agency resources.
• Practical advice about how to correct misclassified individuals.
• Tips about performing your own internal audit.
• Learn about what filing 1099s really do for your situation.
• The true value of written independent contractor agreements.
• How to conduct yourself in the even of an actual audit.

Who Should Participate
HR Professionals, Business Owners, anyone who hires independent contractors.
What You Will Learn
  • A detailed review of the various government agency rules regarding independent contractor vs. employee classification.
  • An explanation of how audits are triggered and how penalties are calculated.
