HR Policies and Compliance Tips When Dealing With Independent Contractors, Interns and Leased Employees

Understand the risks associated with non-direct employees and gain tips to keep your organization compliant and out of lengthy litigation.

Engaging workers to perform services but who are not classified as direct employees presents many risks to employers. Local, state and federal government agencies are cracking down on employers in the area of 1099/independent contractors, unpaid interns and leased employees. Employers must not only recognize the legal risks and potential liabilities associated with engaging the services of such workers, but need to be provided practical guidance and real-world tools in order to diminish these risks and liabilities. This information, presented through examples of actual legal battles from across the United States, will provide insight into what to be aware of and tips on how to protect their respective organizations.
