Nonprofits have a variety of workers who help the organization. How to classify those workers is not as simple as one would think, and failure properly to classify workers can lead to costly and time-consuming unemployment and workers’ compensation claims, U.S. and Georgia Department of Labor audits and IRS investigations. In some cases, nonprofit board members and staff can be held personally liable for unpaid payroll taxes when an employee is incorrectly treated as a contractor. Under the law, specific factors are considered in determining the classification of workers as independent contractors or employees.
During this webcast, our speaker will help nonprofits:
– Identify who is an independent contractor and who is an employee;
– Avoid the risks of classifying workers improperly; and
– Establish a proper independent contractor relationship.
Speaker: Crystal McElrath, Swift Currie
