Hillsboro, OR, September 09, 2017 --(PR.com
)-- Edupliance announces webinar titled, “1099s vs. W-2s: Avoiding Employee and Independent Contractor Misclassification” that aims to update attendees on how to avoid misclassification of workers to prevent fines and lawsuits by filing correct W2 and 1099 for employee and independent workers. The event goes live on Thursday, September 14, from 01:00 PM to 02:30 PM, EST / 10 AM to 11:30 AM PST.
Companies that intentionally classify workers as independent contractors, rather than employees, save on expenses. However, if misclassified, these workers don’t receive their entitled benefits and neither does the government receive its employee-related income, such as unemployment, disability and Social Security taxes, and workers’ compensation premiums. Misclassifying employees and independent contractors are getting more costly by the day. With federal and state agencies joining forces to combat misclassification, fines and penalties have skyrocketed. And every day the misclassification continues the penalties mount up and then it might be too late for your company.
The 90-minute webinar will be conducted by Vicki Lambert, CPP, who has over 35 years of hands-on experience in all facets of payroll functions as well as over 20 years as a trainer and author. Ms. Lambert has become the most sought-after and respected voice in the practice and management of payroll issues. She has conducted open market training seminars on payroll issues across the United States that have been attended by executives and professionals from some of the most prestigious firms in business today.
