Contractor Rules Expand Employer Risks
Ted Boehm was quoted Business Insurance on August 4, 2015. The article “Contractor Rules Expand Employer Risks” discussed how the new Labor Department guidance on classifying workers as employees versus independent contractors is expected to increase litigation against employers.
“I don't think that's going to happen overnight, but I do think the cumulative effect of private litigation and the DOL's focus on this issue is likely going to lead to fewer employers using that model over time,” said Ted.
Pointing to the independent contractor and overtime issues, Ted said, “I don't think it takes a genius to predict that both of those actions will likely inspire new and more claims.”
