What is Misclassification of Employees and why should you care? Because the US Department of Labor just announced it will fine and seek damages from any employer that incorrectly classifies its employees - no more warnings. Two years ago, the Department of Labor announced its enforcement hit list: Employers that misclassify their employees, such as alleged independent contractors who are really employees and employees improperly classified as "exempt" from overtime. Every lawyer who either has employees or advises businesses with employees must recognize these issues. Don't think your clients have much chance of an audit? All it takes is one complaint from a disgruntled ex-employee to get the entire organization audited by the Department of Labor, going back two years. This program examines what the US Department of Labor in Denver looks at, how to correctly classify employees in the hot button areas, and how to fix past "mistakes."
