Understanding the New DOL Gig Economy and IC Guidance

Understanding the New DOL Gig Economy and IC Guidance

Have you read the new DOL gig economy and independent contractor guidance? According to Jessica Looman, Acting DOL Wage and Hour Administrator, “The misclassification of employees as independent contractors is one of the most serious problems facing affected employees, employers and the U.S. economy.”

With duties ranging from truck and ride share drivers to graphic designers, contractors to IT and customer support, independent contractors (IC) are a critical component of the U.S. workforce. However, misclassifying an independent contractor can cost your organization greatly with aggressive penalties, tax issues and potentially even litigation.

In this webinar, we will discuss the new DOL independent contractor and gig economy proposed guidance, how your organization can avoid misclassifying ICs, and answer questions you may have on this topic.

We will also dive into Navigator Independent Contractor, which assesses roles at your company for independent contractor risk.
