Classifying Your Employees: Who's Who in the Office
Nonprofits need to understand whether their workers are employees, independent contractors, volunteers, or interns. Nonprofits that misclassify an employee as an independent contractor are at tremendous financial risk for back taxes, workers' compensation penalties, and other financial burdens as a result of noncompliance with federal, state, and local employment law, even if the individual in question insisted on being classified as an independent contractor. This webinar explains a nonprofit's obligations to each different type of worker, how to set up each type of relationship properly, and what to do if an individual has been misclassified.
Learning Objectives: Participants will learn how to differentiate among the different types of workers, and how to create legally compliant relationships with each.
For senior management and human resources professionals.
