Misclassification is a pain point in a variety of industries, especially those that utilize owner-operator workforces. Everyone knows they want to avoid a misclassification claim, but few understand exactly what that means. The term “misclassification” represents a broad spectrum of legal woes. It might include workers’ compensation claims, unemployment claims, civil action claims, Department of Labor claims, and many other types of claims at various levels of government. Differences in state and federal law further complicate the issue.
Openforce’s Ryan Kelly, and Taylor & Associates Partner Kristen M.J. Johnson, will provide a blueprint for jump-starting risk mitigation. Ryan will discuss the types of misclassification claims and how they affect companies with owner-operator workforces.
