Workplace Misclassifications: Independent Contractors, Exempt vs. Non-Exempt, and What Else?


As Federal and State agencies become more aggressive in the workplace, it’s even more critical for HR professionals to be alert to the latest regulations and pitfalls in classifying employees and having “contractors”.  Learn what actions you should pursue to protect your company from these pitfalls. Become aware of some of the latest legal actions occurring across the country. Find out how to educate your managers to properly review the status of their employees. Get your company ready for the 2016 “mis-classification” roller coaster.
