THE USE OF "CONTINGENT WORKERS" - ISSUES FOR EMPLOYERS, 1 CLE hour
 
“Contingent workers” are a broad category of workers who are neither fulltime nor part-time employees of an employer.  They may be traditional independent contractors hired directly by the employer, or formally work for staffing companies or a vendor who provides services to the employer. Their number is rapidly increasing as workers seek more flexibility, companies are reluctant to commit to hiring fulltime employers with all the associated costs, and new business models require more flexibility than traditional hiring and work practices.  But for employers utilizing these workers there are still points of substantial liability depending on the nature of the legal arrangement between the worker and the employer and how the worker is treated and supervised.  This program will provide you with guide to identifying contingent workers, their proper classification and treatment, and tips on mitigating employer liability for their use.
