San Francisco, CA (PRWEB) July 14, 2015
Nelson Compliance announced today the addition of a new Independent Contractor Application (IC App) as an integral part of its overall independent contractor compliance solution. A unique cloud-based program designed to help companies address the growing issue of independent contractor compliance, the IC App streamlines and demystifies the challenges, complexities and vagueness of the multiple state and federal laws, regulations and tests associated with the classification of independent contractors.
“The workforce is changing,” said Jeff Phelps, CEO of Nelson Compliance. “Companies in both traditional and new industries are relying more heavily on independent contractors to respond to fluctuations in demand and cyclical hiring needs. At the same time, federal and state requirements are constantly shifting. It’s more important than ever that companies have easy-to-use, time-saving tools to ensure their employee classifications conform to state and local laws to avoid significant fines and penalties and reduce audit risk.”
The IC App, developed through a joint venture of a leading US employment law firm and a legal software development firm, incorporates all relevant state and federal tests and nearly 1,400 adjudicated cases. This ensures companies have the most up-to-date information they need to follow IC compliance requirements. “We believe the IC App will become the industry de facto standard tool for providing the essential information related to the classification of independent contractors,” added Phelps.
“Nelson has been building comprehensive compliance programs for Fortune 500 firms since 1994,” explained Craig Nelson, Chairman of the Nelson Family of Companies. “Bringing the next generation of independent contractor solutions to market demonstrates our continued commitment to this industry.”
