1099 Contractor or W2 Employee (webinar)

Many employers struggle when classifying their workers. 1099 contractors have advantages of simplicity for the business owner. However, state and federal lawmakers make this difficult for various reasons.

In March of 2024 the U.S. Department of Labor changed the rules for determining how to classify workers. The complicated “degree of control” test has been updated to the new “economic reality” test. This is a big change – the D.O.L. guidance is 106 pages long!

It’s important to get this wrong. Employers who mis-classify their workers face surprise taxes, penalties, and in the case of a worker’s injury or death, serious lawsuits that may not be covered by insurance.
