That’s Not My Employee! (Or Is It?)


Michael McIntosh

As the U.S. economy evolves, so do organizations’ relationships with those who perform work for them. With the explosion of the “gig economy,” and the continuing proliferation of the use of independent contractors, organizations are more and more frequently looking to nontraditional relationships to solve their workforce needs. But while organizations and workers often embrace the flexibility and freedom associated with such relationships, they can also create legal uncertainty. Organizations often struggle determining when individuals can be treated as independent contractors. And joint employer liability is governed by increasingly varied - and sometimes uncertain - tests under various federal and state statutes and regulatory schemes. In this session, we will discuss the expansion of these working relationships, the latest in the evolving legal standards concerning independent contractor and joint employer statuses, as well as approaches to mitigating the related risks of liability.

This session will get you thinking about the various ways symbols are present in your workplace and highlight how to deal with potentially problematic symbols in the workplace.
