Taking the Guesswork Out of W-2s, 1099s and Independent Contractors

Duration: 90 minutes

Misclassifying employees and independent contractors is getting more costly by the day. With federal and state agencies joining forces to combat misclassification, fines and penalties have skyrocketed.   (more details below)
