Stay out of hot water with contractor classification during COVID-19. Understand when people working from home are employees.
As more people work from home during the pandemic, many of the boundaries employers used to classify workers as contractors or employees have disappeared. Organizations that previously considered people in the office as employees and individuals who worked more independently from home as contractors can no longer use these differentiating criteria.
The distinction between employee and independent contractor has become blurred. You need to understand the emerging risks and take action to avoid them. Misclassifying employees as contractors can lead to costly lawsuits while invoking penalties from regulators.
