New White Paper from Patriot Software helps small business owners avoid costly fines from employee misclassification.

I don’t believe for a second that there are 22 million companies that don’t have employees at all.

Patriot Software Inc. offers a free guide to explain the difference between independent contractors and employees.

Worker misclassification is rampant, and federal and state agencies are cracking down on employers who misclassify their workers. Patriot’s guide helps small business owners stay compliant with classification laws and avoid potentially costly fines.

According to the 2012 Census, there are approximately 28 million companies in the U.S., but 22 million claim to not have employees.

“This means only six million companies in the U.S. classify their workers as employees,” says Mike Kappel, CEO of Patriot Software Inc. “The other 22 million either don’t have workers or classify them as independent contractors. I don’t believe for a second that there are 22 million companies that don’t have employees at all.” Chances are, federal and state agencies wont believe them either.

Patriot’s free guide explains how to identify workers, what forms are related to classification, and what employers should do if they misclassify workers.

The guide can be downloaded from Patriot’s payroll blog or by going to the guide’s download page.
