Employers Must Prepare for Scrutiny as Federal and State Labor Departments Join Together to Fight Employee Misclassification
Goldberg Segalla Link to more items from this source
Oct. 10, 2014
"[The DOL] has embarked upon a 'Misclassification Initiative' under which it has signed a Memorandum of Understanding (MOU) with the Internal Revenue Service and with numerous state Departments of Labor. These include Alabama, California, Colorado, Connecticut, Hawaii, Illinois, Iowa, Louisiana, Maryland, Massachusetts, Minnesota, Missouri, Montana, New York, Utah, and Washington. Under these agreements, the agencies will work together and share information to reduce the incidence of misclassification, to help reduce the tax gap, and to improve compliance with federal labor laws. The agencies want to level the playing field for law-abiding employers who are finding it increasingly difficult to compete in the marketplace."
