Compliance Issues When Utilizing Alternative Workforce

Prevent exposing your business to considerable legal risk while utilizing independent contractors and other contingent works.

Many businesses rely upon independent contractors or other contingent workers, but do not understand the legal standards for being able to do so. These standards can vary by state and federal agency, and getting it wrong potentially means tremendous wage, tax, benefit, and other liability, as well as having to change your business model. This is an area that has received increased public attention, plaintiff, and governmental scrutiny in recent years, and will continue to do so with the rise of the shared economy and technology. This topic will help educate those responsible at companies for managing these workforces on how best to do so in a way that minimizes risk and increases compliance with the thicket of laws. The topic will take participants through both the legal standards and practical considerations in using such a workforce. The topic is critical for businesses who want to continue to rely upon independent contractors and other contingent workers without exposing the business to considerable legal risk.
