Third Thursday Webinar: The Changing Game of Worker Classification

October 24, 2019 • Webinar

Starts: 12:00 PM (EDT)
Ends: 1:00 PM (EDT)

Please join us for the next edition of Third Thursday – Crowell & Moring’s Labor and Employment Update, a webinar series dedicated to helping our clients stay on top of developing law and emerging compliance issues.

Worker classification has been the focus of both the U.S. Department of Labor and state regulators for years. The past year has brought significant new guidance from state legislatures and from courts regarding independent contractor classification, joint employer status, and exemption from federal law overtime requirements. For example, new laws such as California’s A.B. 5, codifying the so-called “ABC Test,” significantly hamper the ability of companies to classify many workers as independent contractors. 

Many of these developments require employers to rethink the way they structure their relationships with vendors, staffing companies, franchisees, individual contractors, and even regular employees. During this webinar, we will provide an overview of the changes in the legal landscape and guidance on how employers might adjust their practices in response. 

This webinar is scheduled for October 24, 2019, at 12:00 pm Eastern. We hope that you can join us and participate in a lively discussion of these issues.
