Five Minute Mentor – Employee Misclassification: Independent Contractor vs. Employee; Exempt vs. Non Exempt Status

by Alexa Drago on January 22, 2014

What is Misclassification of Employees and why should you care? Because the US Department of Labor just announced it will fine and seek damages from any employer that incorrectly classifies its employees – no more warnings.  Every lawyer who either has employees or advises businesses with employees must recognize these new issues. This program examines what the US Department of Labor in Denver looks at, how to correctly classify employees in the hot button areas, and how to fix past “mistakes.”
