Improper classification of workers as independent contractors instead of employees causes a myriad of problems for employers. With the recent issuance of the IRS Voluntary Classification Settlement Program, there has been a renewed focus on how companies should be classifying their workers.

This program will provide:
  • An overview of the worker classification issue and how it has evolved
  • A summary of the new IRS Voluntary Classification Settlement Program
  • A discussion of the advantages and disadvantages of using the new IRS Voluntary Classification Settlement Program and its implications for employee benefit programs
