Worker misclassification remains on the front burner for wage-hour practitioners. Federal, state and local governments have been cracking down on independent contractor misclassification in order to generate revenues in back taxes, with interest and penalties added on. Entire industries have been targeted for their use of contractors and interns. And claims of exempt-status misclassification under federal and state law are as widespread—and high-stakes—as ever. Join us for a discussion of these important topics in light of recent case law and legislative action.
Topics will include:
  • Properly classifying and managing independent contractors under federal and state law; 
  • The U.S. Depatment of Labor’s anticipated revision of the FLSA “white collar” exemptions; 
  • Case law developments on exempt-status misclassification; and 
  • The continued viability of internships
