Focus on Nonprofit Employee Misclassification: Are Your Workers "Employees," "Volunteers" or "Contractors?"

This event has already occurred.

Many nonprofit organizations use independent contractors and volunteers to supplement their regular employee workforces, but not all of them pay enough attention to the legal definitions of "employee," "independent contractor," and "volunteer."

Organizations caught misclassifying workers could find themselves making the wrong kind of headlines and paying significant fines and penalties. Don't wait, make sure you're classifying correctly.
Concerned for the rights of misclassified workers (and interested in boosting their own tax revenues), federal and state governments are increasing their efforts to identify and correct independent contractor and volunteer misclassifications. The consequences for violators can be severe.
