On Tuesday, August 16, 2016, join Jordan B. Schwartz, Eric J. Conn, and Lindsay A. Smith of Conn Maciel Carey’s national Labor and Employment Practice and OSHA Practice, for a complimentary webinar regarding Joint Employer, Multi-Employer, Contractor and Temp Worker Employment Law and OSHA issues.
Here is a link to register for this webinar.
Employers’ perceptionsabout their legal responsibilities for certain workers is not always reality. Although an employer may classify a worker as a temporary worker or independent contractor, that does not mean the Department of Labor (“DOL”) takes the same view. Recently, the DOL has been vocal about its belief that most workers should be treated as employees, insinuating that in a majority of cases, it would hold employers accountable for the specific obligations of an employer-employee relationship. Additionally, employers may have certain employment law and OSHA related obligations and potential liability depending on their role at multi-employer worksites or in joint employer situations.
Overall, the DOL has been cracking down on employee misclassification and division of responsibility among multiple employers; thus, it is essential for employers to carefully evaluate the employment relationship and their own individual function at in the multi-employer context.
Participants in this webinar will learn the following:
- Criteria used to evaluate the employer-employee relationship
- Employers roles on a multi-employer worksite and the specific obligations associated with each role
- Guidance on how to clearly establish an independent contractor relationship
- How to lawfully and effectively manage temporary workers at your workplace.
We look forward to presenting these important issues to you.
