Classifying whether a worker is an independent contractor or an employee is crucial for businesses. However, although most employers try to do it right, many of them still misunderstand the legal distinctions between the two.

With the government’s growing tendency to challenge independent contractor classifications, it is essential for practitioners and employers to ensure compliance with the relevant rules.
