Know When You Can Classify Employees As Independent Contractors Or Exempt
Your business could be investigated or subject to fines because of claims that it either misclassified employees as exempt from overtime requirements or misclassified employees as independent contractors.
Our attorneys represent businesses in disputes with the government over classification of workers. We also provide training on how to avoid employee classification disputes.
Our goal is to protect your business. In addition to representing employers in legal proceedings, our lawyers perform audits to determine whether current business policies comply with federal and New York labor and employment laws and with regulations set by the relevant authorities. We stay up to date on the changing developments of these laws, and if we determine there is noncompliance, can provide comprehensive counsel and training on how to properly classify your employees.
