Companies that intentionally classify workers as independent contractors, rather than employees, save on expenses. However, if misclassified, these workers don’t receive their entitled benefits and neither does the government receive its employee-related income, such as unemployment, disability and Social Security taxes, and workers’ compensation premiums. Misclassifying employees and independent contractors are getting more costly by the day. With federal and state agencies joining forces to combat misclassification, fines and penalties have skyrocketed. And every day the misclassification continues the penalties mount up and up until this ticking time bomb finally explodes! 

According to the IRS, generally, if the worker is an employee, “you must withhold income taxes, withhold and pay Social Security and Medicare taxes, and pay unemployment tax on wages paid to an employee. You do not generally have to withhold or pay any taxes on payments to independent contractors.”

Find out how to defuse that ticking bomb by joining renowned payroll expert Vicki M. Lambert, CPP for this information packed webinar. She will discuss requirements for classifying a worker as an independent contractor or as an employee.

Session Highlights:

  • What classifications of workers are permitted under the IRS Rules

  • What is the common law rule and how is it used to determine worker status

  • What are the three factors the IRS uses to determine worker status and how to apply them correctly

  • How the FLSA rules differ from the IRS rules and why you have to follow both

  • How does the state trump both the IRS and the FLSA on determining independent 
    contractor status with the ABC test for SUI

  • What are the latest agreements or programs being used by the IRS, DOL, and the states to “find” misclassified employees

  • Using the Form SS-8 to your advantage to determine worker status

  • Who gets a W-2 and who gets a 1099 and why it should never be the same worker

  • Find out how easily a 1099 audit can be triggered and why the chances of getting one are on the rise

  • What are the penalties for misclassifying an employee as an independent contractor and who assesses them?  It’s not just the IRS you have to worry about. 

  • You found out you have a misclassified employee—now what?
