A recent article in Business Insurance touched on new Labor Department guidance on classifying workers as employees versus independent contractors, which is expected to increase litigation against employers. Experts recommend that firms, particularly those with a significant number of independent contractors, conduct an audit now to ensure they are classified properly under the Fair Labor Standards Act.
RPNA managing partner Drew E. Pomerance was quoted in the article, sharing that “employers that do not ‘re-emphasize’ their employment relationships will become more susceptible to litigation. Workers who challenge their firms’ job classifications will be more likely to be correct because the guidelines are clearer.”
