Classify Independent Contractors (Supervisor)
This course cuts through the confusing laws governing worker misclassification and provides a straightforward approach to correctly classifying workers and avoiding costly mistakes.
Course Overview
Worker misclassification is a common mistake. Given the patchwork of laws that governs this area, it's no wonder. And it has dire consequences. Federal and state governments prosecute, penalize, and collect for lost tax revenue. Employees sue for unpaid wages, overtime, and more. Employers can find themselves stuck with overwhelming liabilities for one bad decision made years earlier.

This course cuts through the confusion and provides a straightforward approach to classifying workers. It provides a comprehensive survey of the most common factors used to determine worker status, so supervisors can retain independent contractors with confidence. It also demonstrates the most common ways a supervisor can run afoul of the law, so that yours won't make the same mistakes.

AB1825 places certain requirements on web-based training, including instructional design, interactivity, content, anti-harassment policy, tracking, and record-keeping. Our training solution exceeds every requirement. We provide broader protection for your company because the course also covers other forms of discrimination besides sexual harassment and because we strive beyond simply informing employees. We aim to influence behavior and improve performance.

Why LawRoom – advantages over live training

Online training offers many advantages over live training. For one, attendees in live training can listen passively. So, there is no way to be sure they’re engaged and comprehend the training. Online training is individualized and challenges attendees’ comprehension with interactive exercises and real world role-playing activities. Plus, online training is available 24/7 from any computer connected to the Internet. This allows employees to train at their own pace and convenience and be more productive. But best of all, you don’t have to bring back a trainer for the employees who missed the live training.

Other advantages over live training:

  • Consistent quality, message, and training
  • Quickly deploy and train entire workforce
  • Less disruption of work-time – more cost-effective
  • Track progress and generate reports
  • Electronic evidence of training

Don’t take our word for the advantage of online over live training. According to the U.S. Department of Education, "a systematic search of the research literature from 1996 through July 2008 identified more than a thousand empirical studies of online learning. Analysts screened these studies . . . and found that, on average, students in online learning conditions performed better than those receiving face-to-face instruction."
