Staffing and Contingent Workers

Overview

The modern economy includes millions of workers who have some dotted line connection to more than one business. Whether it’s a temporary staffing company placing workers on a remote job site, a Professional Employer Organization (PEO) providing outsourced human resources, or a third party labor contractor, these arrangements can lead to intricate legal problems unless managed correctly.

Litigation of Disputes
Legal challenges in the staffing and contingent worker field often lead to litigation, where we excel at providing effective representation in the courtroom, at arbitration, or before government agencies. The challenge may stem from a claim of joint employment, an indemnification agreement that needs to be enforced or overcome, a claim of independent contractor misclassification, or a disagreement over the legal status of the working relationship.  Whatever the case, we provide innovative strategic counsel to deliver results for you.

Compliance Advice
Businesses involved in staffing and contingent workforce matters have a multitude of responsibilities and compliance challenges to face each day, especially those with multistate operations. We can provide proactive assistance to ensure you stay on the right side of the law wherever you do business, whether you need help with Affordable Care Act (ACA) compliance, State Unemployment Insurance (SUI) matters, state PEO licensing requirements, or any number of other matters. We can aid with the drafting of contracts for HR outsourcing, client agreements for PEO and staffing companies, and master vendor agreements. We are often called to help with the staffing onboarding process and provide advice on all aspects of contingent workforce enrollment documentation.

Payroll Tax and Benefits Matters
Our team of attorneys is skilled at advising and representing businesses faced with payroll tax audits and benefits matters unique to the contingent workforce. We can provide compliance tools to review your practices before problems arise to put you in the best position should they be called into question. And if the government inserts itself to investigate or take action, we can provide immediate representation and put forward the best possible defense.
