Alert - Independent Contractor Laws CHANGE 2024

1/25/2024
Wendy Sellers speaks urgently about the shifting laws regarding independent contractors. This change is set to take full effect in March 2024, replacing the existing rules established in 2021. This mandate prompts employers to pay close attention to their current contractors on their "payroll" or "books". Violating these new laws, either deliberate or accidental, could lead to serious penalties such as fines, imprisonment, or wage-related obligations of exceptional amounts. Moving forward, these new rules will apply the economic reality test using six factors to distinguish whether someone is an independent contractor or a W-2 employee. The factors to consider include the role of the individual service to the business, the contractor's investment in facilities and equipment, the nature and degree of control by the employer or contractor, opportunities for profit and loss, initiative with judgement or foresight for success, and lastly, the persistence of the relationship. A violation identified as willful or intentional may extend the two-year statute of limitations for making amendments to three years. Check with employment attorneys or HR consultants to help them navigate this complex and evolving landscape.

FLSA Rules Changed for Independent Contractor Status March 11th 2024

1/15/2024
On March 11, 2024, the 2021 Independent Contractor Rule ends, and the FLSA Rules Change, making it more challenging to classify individuals as contractors. The official website and "final rule" information can be found at this website https://www.federalregister.gov/documents/2024/01/10/2024-00067/employee-or-independent-contractor-classification-under-the-fair-labor-standards-act The Department of Labor's Application of the Economic Reality Test (1) the extent to which the services in question are an integral part of the `employer[']s' business; (2) the amount of the so-called `contractor's' investment in facilities and equipment; (3) the nature and degree of control by the principal; (4) opportunities for profit and loss; . . . (5) the amount of initiative judgment or foresight required for the success of the claimed independent enterprise[;] and [(6)] permanency of the relation.” The guidance cautioned that no single factor is controlling, and “ordinarily a definite decision as to whether one is an employee or an independent contractor under the [FLSA] cannot be made in the absence of evidence as to [the worker's] actual day-to-day working relationship with [their] principal. Clearly a written contract does not always reflect the true situation.” PS: The first federal lawsuit against this updated was filed on January 16. Stay tuned!
