Independent Contractor or Employee: The Dangers of Misclassification

GT's Jonathan Sulds will serve as a speaker on the "Independent Contractor or Employee: The Dangers of Misclassification" Live Webinar taking place on Wednesday, April 27, 2022 from 3:00 p.m. to 4:30 p.m. (ET). 


The U.S. Department of Labor (DOL) Wage and Hour Division and the National Labor Relations Board (NLRB) are continuously taking initiatives to improve each agency’s law enforcement, specifically against employee misclassification. Guided by their standards, the DOL and the NLRB aggressively enforces the Fair Labor Standards Act (FLSA) and the National Labor Relations Act (NLRA) respectively to expand the scope of classifying joint employers while narrowing the scope of categorizing independent contractors.

Employers must look closely at any developments in this field of law to keep their independent contractors at arm’s length, thus avoiding potential pitfalls and lawsuits.
Join a panel of key thought leaders and distinguished professionals organized by The Knowledge Group as they provide a comprehensive discussion of the latest enforcement trends in classifying employees. Speakers, among other things, will offer practical compliance strategies in this rapidly evolving regulatory landscape.

Key issues that will be covered in this course are:

  • Employee Classification: Latest Regulatory Trends and Developments
  • Demystifying the Fair Labor Standards Act (FLSA) and the National Labor Relations Act (NLRA)
  • Risks and Pitfalls Associated with Employee Misclassification
  • Explore Effective Compliance Strategies
  • What Lies Ahead
