VIDEO ENCORE: The Tax and Wage and Hour Ramifications of Worker Misclassification

In today's 21st Century "gig economy," the issue of worker misclassification is increasingly salient for practitioners, workers and employers. When employers misclassify their employees as independent contractors, the consequences can be challenging for both employers and their workers. When workers receive a Form 1099 instead of a Form W-2, even though they are employees, they're on the hook for both employer and employee side of Social Security and Medicare taxes. They also lose out on crucial benefits employees may be entitled to under various federal laws. For employers, misclassification can lead to costly wage and hour class and collective actions, as well as potential auditing from the IRS where penalties can be stiff and onerous.

In this program, panelists with experience in wage and hour and tax law, will address various aspects of misclassification. They will also highlight the federal, state and city tax ramifications of misclassification.
