Gaithersburg, MD (PRWEB) July 25, 2011
PJC Publishing, LLC, the nation’s leading source of books, guides and education on legal issues related to independent contractors and the contingent workforce, announces the release of Hollrah’s State Guide on Independent Contractors by Washington, D.C. attorney Russell Hollrah.
Hollrah’s State Guide provides everything businesses and their legal advisors need to know to comply with state unemployment tax laws, worker classification, and unemployment statues pertaining to their contingent workforce. This one-of-a-kind, massive, and comprehensive guide has over 1,400 pages in two volumes and covers the ins and outs of independent contractor law for purposes of state unemployment throughout the fifty United States and the District of Columbia.
Hollrah’s State Guide contains all the state unemployment laws to enable companies to properly engage workers as independent contractors at the state level. The book includes general tests plus specific inclusions and exclusions for all fifty states and the District of Columbia. In addition, it contains a multi-state exclusions matrix covering numerous major service categories. The consistent terminology throughout the book enables accurate comparison and compliance across states.
Available in hard copy and electronically, Hollrah’s State Guide appeals to all customers. “By being fully available online, Hollrah’s State Guide becomes especially convenient to use because even when you leave the office, the book is always available. For example, you are out talking to a business associate and are interested in expanding your independent contractor based business to Arizona – you can quickly pull out your smart phone to reference your online version of the State Guide and check all the regulations regarding contingent workers in that state,” said Jennifer Ferraro, the company’s executive editor.
With this mass of information compiled into one easy to use book, Hollrah’s State Guide becomes an invaluable tool for businesses who do business with independent contractors across state lines. Supplemented with bi-monthly updates, Hollrah’s State Guide stays up-to-date with all the important and current legislation.
“This book couldn’t have come out at a better time,” said Ferraro. “With the government cracking down on independent contractors and with all the pending legislation regarding contingent-workers for state unemployment tax purposes, it is imperative for companies to stay on top of all these issues to avoid misclassification problems and Hollrah’s State Guide can do that for them.”
