Jennifer A. Powell, Employment Law Attorney & Shareholder


Employers must classify workers as either independent contractors or employees and employees as exempt or nonexempt from minimum wage and overtime laws. With an increased focus on enforcement, including the addition of 100 Department of Labor wage and hour investigators, it is more important than ever to make these classifications properly. This session will provide you with the tools you need to do exactly that.

Learning objectives:

  • Understand the difference between employees and independent contractors and the legal standards that govern.
  • Understand the difference between exempt and nonexempt employees and the legal standards that govern.
  • Understand the importance of correctly classifying workers in these categories, including penalties for misclassification.
