Since the emergence of the gig economy, employers increasingly have relied on independent contractors and other nontraditional workers to solve their business needs. While companies and workers often embrace the flexibility and freedom associated with such business relationships, they also create legal uncertainty – especially for those employers operating in California.
These nontraditional work arrangements raise a variety of complex legal issues, including but not limited to tax, employee benefits and discrimination and other potential claims against the entity utilizing the nontraditional workers. Liability as a joint employer is governed by an increasingly disparate number of factors for determining “employee status” under various federal and state statutes – and regulatory schemes. In this session, we will discuss the latest in these evolving standards, approaches to mitigating the risk of liability as a joint employer and explore new developments in the expansion of these working relationships.
During this 90-minute master class, moderated by ComplianceHR CEO Lori Brown, contingent workforce thought leaders Neil Alexander, Nina Markey and William Weissman will take attendees through the necessary and essential survival information for HR professionals, corporate counsel, and compliance and sourcing managers to navigate the ever-shifting legal landscape. Participants will:
