Employee or Independent Contractor? A New Regulation Answers The Question | Employers Beware.

Andrew Lieb / Lauren Lieb / Mordy Yankovich

If an employer misclassifies a staff member as an independent contractor, when such staff member should be classified as an employee, it can result in a devastating blow to the employer who will be exposed to statutory penalties, back pay, attorneys' fees, and more. 

We discuss the new federal regulation that implements a new test to determine if a staff member is an independent contractor or an employee.

We also discuss the fact that this regulation is effective after Biden is sworn in as President and debate what the future holds for wage and hour law under a Biden Administration.
