Independent Contractor/Employee (Mis)classification:  

Tax & Labor Law Considerations


This CLE will provide attorneys with a briefing on the current tax and labor law considerations focused on misclassification of workers as independent contractors. Misclassifying workers can expose businesses to penalties and liability for taxes, overtime pay, and more. 

Please join Shamsey Oloko, Esq., Partner, Thorgood Law Firm, Business Tax, and Shaun C. Reid, Esq., Principal, Reid Kelly, P.C., Labor & Employment, for a stimulating discussion geared towards guiding attorneys representing employers using independent contractors on how to shield their businesses from future liability.  Our panelists will describe potential areas of liability exposure, offer strategies to avoid or minimize liability and penalties, and outline best practices for counsel and employers to avoid or mitigate liability and penalties for misclassification while ensuring compliance with state and federal laws.

 Seating is limited. This event is $10 for active MBBA members and $20.00 for non-members. Breakfast will be provided.
