In response to the changing workforce driven by COVID-19, the DOL has developed a new rule that impacts how employers determine if a worker is an employee or an independent contractor. A major catalyst of this new rule is the boom in the gig economy, and employers utilizing independent contractors to keep their businesses operating.
In addition to the proposed DOL rule, many states are adopting their own rules and criteria for identifying independent contractors. The rigorous ABC test, which took effect this year in California, is also pending or under consideration in numerous other states. Employers need to understand the new rules for classifying workers, or they are at risk for wage and hour audits, assessments of back taxes and interest, and class action suits.
