Tell a Friend About This EventTell a Friend
 

Characterizing a worker as an employee or independent contractor carries with it a multitude of substantial legal consequences, particularly in employment and tax law. If a worker is an employee, the tax and compliance “cost” of a worker is substantially more than if the worker is an independent contractor. More recently, the Affordable Care Act also requires employers of a certain size to provide full-time (as distinct from part-time) employees with health insurance.

Characterizing a worker as an employee or independent contractor carries with it a multitude of substantial legal consequences, particularly in employment and tax law. If a worker is an employee, the tax and compliance “cost” of a worker is substantially more than if the worker is an independent contractor. More recently, the Affordable Care Act also requires employers of a certain size to provide full-time (as distinct from part-time) employees with health insurance. In employment law, if a worker is characterized as an employee, the employer acquires EEO liability for the employee’s actions. This program provides attorneys advising businesses with a practical guide to classifying workers as employees or independent contractors, the substantive legal consequences under tax and employment law, and best practices to avoid liability.

• Understanding the employment and tax law implications of characterizing a worker as an “employee” or independent contractor
• Tax factors to determine whether a worker is a contractor vs. an employee
• Tax liability and withholding obligations of employers depending on the classification
• Affordable Care Act implications of characterizing an employee as full-time or part-time
• Employment law factors for characterizing a worker as an employee or contractor
• Employer liability for EEO and discrimination violations committed by contractors

Speaker: Carol R. Miaskoff is Assistant Legal Counsel at the U.S. Equal Employment Opportunity Commission in Washington, D.C., where she has played a central role in addressing new labor and employment legislation from the EEOC perspective, including various aspects of the Health Insurance Portability and Accountability Act and the Family and Medical Leave Act. She is coauthor of the law review article Coverage of Psychiatric Disorders Under the Americans with Disabilities Act.
