Energy companies face increasing scrutiny by government agencies and the plaintiffs’ bar for their use of independent contractors. Given the prevalence of independent contractors, companies must understand the risks of misclassifying employees as such, including tax, employee benefit, wage/hour, and other potential liabilities.

Topics will include:

  • Tests used by agencies and courts to determine contractor/employee status
  • The potential liabilities an employer may face for misclassification
