Misclassifying Leased Employees. Are They Really Your Workers?

Duration: 60 minutes

Speaker: Max Muller



Webinar Description

As more and more companies are leasing employees from professional employer organizations (PEOs), federal and state government agencies are scrutinizing the relationships between host organizations and their providers of leased employees.  


In a quest to obtain more tax dollars, government agencies seek to establish that the host employer is actually the primary employer, making it liable for unpaid payroll, FUTA, SUTA, and FICA taxes. The determination that the host employer is the primary employer would also expose the host company to liability for retroactive employee benefits.   


Because the determination of who the primary employer may be is highly fact driven, host employers must understand not only what facts and circumstances government agencies analyze but, more important, how to use those factors in a manner most favorable to themselves. That is what this fast paced, information rich session is all about – how to position your organization to successfully defend charges that your leased employees are actually YOUR employees.
