Description

It has become all too common for individuals to be paid as “contractors”, when the reality is that they are employees in all but name. This creates risks for all parties.

Misclassification deprives these workers of significant protections and rights, while simultaneously exposing employers to significant liability for unpaid taxes and premiums. More importantly, a “contractor” may be an employee in the eyes of the law, and courts will not simply accept the manner in which the parties have defined their relationship.Employers can end up on the hook for substantial severance to a dismissed contractor. Contrary to popular belief, there are no magic bullets. Even a well-drafted contractor agreement will not help if the factual reality is that the individual is an employee.

Join Rudner MacDonald on Thursday, June 1st for a LinkedIn Q&A to learn how to avoid these pitfalls, how to ensure employees and contractors are not treated alike, and to discuss recent legal developments and issues in this area.

Registration is free and this session is available to anyone with a LinkedIn account.

Submit your questions during the session, or in advance by emailing socialmedia@rudnermacdonald.com or tweeting with the hashtag #RMLinkedIn.
