Why is worker classification important?
Employers know that people want to Work In Any Way, and offering flexible employment options is key to having a happy and productive workforce. Many people enjoy the freedom of working as an independent contractor, moving between clients and being able to work the hours they want, from the location they want.
As an employer, it is important to consider how you manage these engagements to ensure that you are not exerting undue control over contract workers. This can put you at risk of misclassification fines and penalties when government agencies investigate employment conditions.
