Top 5 Joint Employer Questions Answered

Avoid misunderstandings and common mistakes when utilizing joint employment.

In an economic environment where businesses must find creative staffing solutions to get work done, how do they recognize the hidden dangers in having workers with different types of working relationships? This topic helps responsible employers understand the different types of employment relationships, the pros and cons of each, and how to avoid unknowingly changing an individual's employment status. Discuss the various tests available for determining employment status, the responsibilities that can flow with being a joint employer, and how to begin the process of determining the best working relationships for your business. Failing to have a handle on the employment statuses of those working for and with your business can have dramatic consequences ranging from wage and hour issues to discrimination liability in the thousands of dollars.
