Leading contingent workforce compliance experts collaborate on webinar covering the risks associated with contract workers.

Flexible Strategies for Your Flexible Workforce

As the use of contingent labor increases, both federal and state agencies and plaintiffs’ attorneys are increasing their focus on independent contractor misclassification. Leading labor law attorney Kevin Hishta of Ogletree Deakins, together with industry expert Jason Posel, senior vice president of strategy and solutions for Albany Services, will explore strategies and practices for compliantly engaging contract workers, both individually and via third-party firms, to help companies ensure they avoid ending up on the wrong side of an audit or class action lawsuit.

Mr. Hishta has extensive experience in advising clients on contingent worker issues while Mr. Posel has over 10 years experience in managing contract workers and associated tax and labor law issues for corporate clients and both are regular speaker on such issues.

The webinar will cover:

  • The rules and regulations determining independent contractor status. Understand the key distinctions between independent contractors and employees;
  • The risks of independent contractor misclassification and the penalties of reclassification;
  • The strategies and practices for mitigating misclassification risk, including key contract terms, defensible policies and procedures, and comprehensive training programs;
  • The benefits of using a third party for evaluating independent contractor status; and
  • Reclassification strategies.
