Meeting Description:

Joint and Multi-Employer, Independent Contractor, and Temp Worker Employment Law and OSHA Issues

Tuesday, July 11, 2017 at 1 PM ET

Presented by Jordan B. Schwartz, Eric J. Conn and Lindsay A. DiSalvo

Employers’ perceptions about whether a legal employment relationship has been formed is not always shared by the Dept. of Labor.  Although an employer may classify workers as independent contractors or engage them as temp workers through a staffing agency, that does not mean the DOL agrees.  At the tail end of the Obama Administration, the DOL was vocal about its belief that most workers should be treated as employees, so employers will be accountable for the specific obligations of an employer-employee relationship.  Additionally, employers may have certain HR or OSHA obligations and potential liabilities depending on their role at multi-employer worksites or in joint employer situations. The DOL has been cracking down on employee misclassification and division of responsibility among multiple employers.

Now, under the new Trump Administration, the DOL’s and OSHA’s views of the employment relationship are shifting. It is essential for employers to stay abreast of these issues, and carefully evaluate their employment relationships and functions at multi-employer workplaces.

 During this webinar, participants will learn:

  • Current criteria used to evaluate the employer-employee relationship
  • Employers’ responsibilities on multi-employer worksites
  • How to clearly establish an independent contractor relationship
  • How to lawfully and effectively manage temporary workers
