SlideCast Seminar: Independent Contractors and 1099s

Earlier this month, Senators introduced the Payroll Fraud Prevention Act (S. 770). This bill seeks to characterize misclassification of employees as a form of payroll fraud. If passed, the bill would expose businesses who misclassify “employees” as “non-employees” (such as independent contractors) to fines of up to $5,000 per worker per violation of the law. (Click here for a more extensive write-up about the bill – link opens in a new tab).

With this bill on the Senate floor, there’s no better time than the present to brush up on your understanding of employer/independent contractor relationships. We’ve put together a brief SlideCast that covers the basics of independent contractor relationships and filing 1099 forms.



Was this SlideCast helpful to you? If so, we hope you’ll pass it on. If not, please leave a comment letting us know how we can provide more helpful and relevant information about payroll and HR.
