This is a seminar designed to educate business owners, human resources professionals and managers/supervisors on issues related to the problems faced by employers when government agencies assert that an independent contractor should be classified as an employee.

Topics will include:

  • Information on workers compensation insurance for independent contractors including obtaining coverage, costs, and how this coverage might fit in your risk strategy.
  • What happens if the Labor Commissioner contends an independent contractor should be classified as an employee.
  • The arguments available to an employer in the administrative process with the Labor Commissioner and information about the process.
