Is Your Contractor a Contractor?

 In Employee Relations, Employment Law

The Vermont Department of Labor has been running a TV ad on the misclassification of employees as contractors. Vermont has a memo of understanding with the U.S. DOL, so could there be federal money behind it? In any case, I’ve got to believe that if they have money for advertising they have money for enforcement.

This might be a good time to take a hard look at your contractors and be sure your house is in order.  If you need resources, the VT DOL has posted some info here, the US DOL has info here, and SHRM has info here (members only).
