Description
Join us for a discussion of the unprecedented interagency coordination and enforcement efforts and recently enacted legislation affecting worker classification in 2012.

In the past twelve months there has been unprecedented coordination between state agencies, the IRS and the Department of Labor; a wide-ranging White House labor compliance initiative; higher court rulings and changes to the fundamental dynamic of class action lawsuits; and a significant increase in state employment legislation.

As a result, complying with contingent labor laws and regulations is more complex than ever for private companies, in-house counsel and human resource departments.
Interagency information sharing agreements and memoranda of understanding between the IRS, the Department of Labor, and dozens of state labor agencies and officials have sparked multimillion-dollar lawsuits, fines and penalties. Companies have experienced sharp increases in labor compliance and tax audits, Form I-9 “silent raids” by the U.S. Immigrations and Customs Enforcement Agency (up from 1,444 in 2009 to 2,496 in 2011), crippling stop-work orders, and a significant increase in class action lawsuits.

Topics will include: recent collaboration between the IRS, the Department of Labor, and state labor agencies, recent enforcement efforts in California including the new Criminal Investigations Unit and S.B. 459, the effect of “four more years” of the Obama administration given current and past labor enforcement trends and agency spending, state-by-state regulatory updates including the most active state legislatures and attorney generals since January 2011, and independent contractor class action litigation including a discussion of the implications of Perry v. AT&T and Hilton v. Apple.
Who Should Participate
HR Administrators, Contingent Workforce Procurement Professionals, In-House and Corporate Counsel.
What You Will Learn
Best practices for contingent workforce labor compliance in 2012. Current and predicted trends in state and national labor compliance enforcement and legislation. Effective strategies for avoiding audits, class action lawsuits and interagency investigations.
