Every year, U.S. companies pay millions of dollars to the IRS for incorrectly classifying and managing workers. Sometimes, this misclassification is intentional. However, for a far majority of businesses, it is the result of misinformation and misunderstanding. That’s because the rules governing independent contractors are extremely complex and constantly changing.

This mistake could prove costly.

Each instance of unintentional worker misclassification costs companies an average of 11-12.5 percent of that worker’s annual salary, plus interest.

If you don’t want to take on the risks – and expenses – of misclassification, we can help.
