The Costs of Worker Misclassification: How New York is Leading the Charge for National Reform

Worker misclassification continues to gain national attention but many employers are still unclear on how it can affect their business. "The Costs of Worker Misclassification: How New York is Leading the Charge for National Reform" is a free Webinar hosted by Secure Talent in partnership with Advantage, a leader in talent management solutions. Featuring keynote speaker Fred B. Kotler, J.D., of Cornell University, the Webinar takes place on Feb. 13, 2008, at 1 p.m. EST.

As a faculty member of Cornell University School of Industrial and Labor Relations and director of the New York State AFL-CIO/Cornell Union Leadership Institute, Kotler co-authored "The Costs of Worker Misclassification in New York State," a 2007 report that served as a basis for New York Governor Eliot Spitzer’s Executive Order for the Joint Enforcement Task Force on Employee Misclassification.
