More recently, in mid-September 2010, both the House and Senate introduced the Fair Playing Field Act of 2010, which would eliminate the safe harbor that many businesses have relied upon to avoid federal employment tax liability where they may have misclassified employees as independent contractors.
Pepper's Independent Contractor Compliance practice group focuses on the interrelated legal issues involving independent contractors by using an interdisciplinary approach, along with proprietary tools and techniques, to diagnose and enhance employers' compliance with independent contractor laws.
Join us as we discuss how companies using contingent workers can comply with the new legal landscape and minimize or avoid exposure to misclassification liability. We will also discuss our proprietary tools for enhancing corporate compliance with existing and anticipated legislation regarding proper classification of contingent workers.
Following the Breakfast Briefing, each presenter also will be available for a follow-up Q-and-A session for attendees.
