Congress’s Challenges to the Use of Independent Contractors

December 14, 2011

Morgan Lewis presents part one of our webinar series discussing the treatment of independent workers by the legislative and executive branches, including proposed independent contractor legislation and developments from the IRS, the DOL, and the Vice President's Middle Class Task Force.

Topics to be discussed include:

  • Budget and financial considerations behind the increased focus
  • Proposed legislation, such as the recently introduced Employee Misclassification Prevention Act
  • Interrelationships between the independent contractor and deficit-reduction solutions from the Supercommittee
  • Congressional studies, including studies by the Congressional Budget Office
