Employees / Independent Contractors: What’s the Difference?
May 17, 2022 @ 11:30 am - 1:00 pm$20
Do You Know the Difference Between an Employee and an Independent Contractor?
Join us for this month’s Wells Law Lunch and Learn to find out more!
The Department of Labor’s test used to determine whether workers are employees or independent contractors under the federal Fair Labor Standards Act (FLSA) changed recently, making it harder for many employers to classify workers as independent contractors. And President Biden has publicly announced his commitment to boosting worker-protection efforts, including rooting out misclassification.
Employers need to understand the distinction between an employee and an independent contractor because most employees are entitled to minimum wage and overtime pay under the FLSA, but independent contractors are not. Misclassifying workers can be a costly mistake.
