Program description:

Federal administrative agencies, through rule changes, policy statements, and enforcement actions, have taken aim at the traditional employer-employee relationship, unsettling decades of employment law in the process. Many state workplace regulators have taken similar actions, and class-action lawsuits alleging, among other things, improper worker classification have proliferated. Our speakers explain how these disparate actions are converging to impact independent contracting, franchising, and other long-standing employment practices, and what affected enterprises can do to fight back.
