Description

Who doesn't want to save thousands of dollars in taxes? Sometimes employers try to avoid paying employment taxes, workers compensation premiums, and unemployment insurance premiums by designating their workers as Independent Contractors rather than as employees. While doing so can potentially save employers substantial amounts of money, an improper classification can, in turn, be financially devasting. This course will explore the various tests used by governmental agencies to determine whether a worker is an independent contractor or an employee and the potential penalties of misclassification.
