The Labor Department is proposing changes to the basics of worker classification. [Monday Minute]

November 21, 2022 edition of the AIBD’s Monday Minute weekly newsletter.
The Labor Department is proposing changes to the basics of worker classification.
You may have hired subcontractors as a small or micro design firm, owner.

While this can be a great way to get work done quickly and efficiently, it’s essential to understand the basics of worker classification.

Often, small businesses mistakenly classify workers as subcontractors when they are employees.

This can lead to a lot of legal trouble down the road.

Here’s how to know the difference (and what the government is changing about it)
