2018_09: FLSA Worker Classification

***We will be hosting a Dress For Success clothing drive at our September meeting!***  Info here


Worker Classification is a decision made by payors who hire individuals to provide services. The “payor” of a service has the responsibility to correctly classify the worker as either an employee or independent contractor for the future periods of work.  Federal tax compliance hinges on the classification made.  Other important matters also rely upon it, from workers comp coverage to health insurance, pension qualification and potential union protection.  This presentation introduces the topic with basic decision points while opening the door to further discussion.

  • Employee vs. Contractor
  • How to determine status
  • Form SS-8
  • Form 8919
  • FIRE System
  • Voluntary Classification Settlement Program (VCSP)
