Event Details

Latest Legal Developments for Companies and their Independent Contractors // BUSINESS 351

June 25th from 6:00 - 7:30 pm

Stacey M. Gray, Employment Attorney

This class is for companies that rely on independent contractors and those who are classified as 1099ers under the tax code.  Misclassifying an employee as an independent contractor is one of the most expensive mistakes a business can make because of the penalties, fines and potential criminal liability.  The IRS is now targeting companies who misclassify employees as independent contractors to collect unpaid federal, state and local tax withholdings, social security and Medicare contributions, worker’s compensation premiums, overtime, unemployment compensation and disability insurance.  

Attendees will learn the following: 

  • How to properly classify persons as independent contractors
  • Applicable state, city and federal laws regarding independent contractor status
  • The “Economic Realities” test also known as the “Twelve Part Test” to determine whether a person is an independent contractor or an employee  
  • An independent contractor’s legal rights and when to file a complaint  
  • Contractual terms and conditions that should be included in an independent contractor’s agreement to minimize legal exposure and liability  

This will be an interactive class where hypotheticals are based on the shared and individual concerns of the participants.

Stacey M. Gray is the founder and principal of the employment law firm Stacey M. Gray, P.C. located in New York City.  Stacey is a graduate of Duke University and the University of California at Berkeley School of Law.  Stacey’s website and profile are found at www.staceygray.com.
