MCLE Credit: 1 Hour (General)
Speaker(s): Alex W. Craigie, The Law Offices of Alex W. Craigie
Alex is an AV-Preeminent rated trial attorney recognized for bringing an innovative and cost-effective approach to helping small and mid-sized CA companies prevent, address and resolve employment disputes. He counsels employers and routinely defends claims of harassment, discrimination and retaliation, as well as misclassification, wage-hour, rest and meal period claims.
About the Event: No topic in employment law creates more confusion than worker classification. On the one hand, there is the question whether a worker can be legitimately treated as an “independent contractor,” thus avoiding payroll laws and taxes. Equally vexing to many employers is the question whether an employee is “exempt” or “non-exempt.” In both instances, mistakes in classification can be costly, as illustrated by the frequent seven, eight and even nine figure settlements and verdicts covered in the media.
This 1 hour MCLE presentation will demystify the topic of classification. Attendees will be given the tools necessary to understand when a worker can properly be classified as an independent contractor, and whether an employee is exempt or nonexempt. Who should attend? Anyone who faces, or whose clients face, these questions.
