Many nonprofit employers use independent contractors to supplement their regular employee workforces, but not all of them properly distinguish between "employees" and "independent contractors." Out of concern for the rights of misclassified workers, and in the interest of boosting their own tax revenues, federal and state governments are increasing their efforts to identify and correct independent contractor misclassifications. The consequences for violators can be significant.

This panel includes an in-depth discussion of the IRS and U.S. Department of Labor rules concerning the scope of the "independent contractor" construct, the varying state definitions of the classification, and the significant legal implications of getting it wrong.

Speakers: David R. Warner, Brian M. Hudson
