Misclassification Cases Are Complex — We Are Up To The Challenge.

Misclassification of workers may affect their wages, taxes, and rights to benefits, including overtime pay, vacation time, meal breaks, Workers’ Compensation, and legal protections. If you are a worker who has been misclassified, you deserve a proven legal advocate to stand up for your rights and hold your employer accountable. If you are an employer confronting the shifting landscape of employment classification law, now is the time to seek professional counsel to better understand the full scope of your potential liabilities and responsibilities.

Employee or Contractor Misclassification of employees as contractors is a widespread and growing problem. Studies suggest that 10 to 20 percent of employers misclassify at least one employee. The internet and the proliferation of mobile apps have fueled the growth of a sharing economy, which ostensibly allows assets and services to be shared among private individuals. In reality, the sharing economy enables large companies to reap enormous profits by using on-demand workers who are treated as contractors instead of employees.

The difference between an employee and a contractor continues to be in dispute. In 2018, the California Supreme Court made a landmark decision by adopting an ABC test that employers must pass to legally classify workers as independent contractors. Among other things, this test includes a strict provision that workers cannot be classified as contractors unless they are only performing tasks outside of the company’s usual course of business. This ruling has sparked debates nationwide as other states consider adopting similar measures to redefine the nature of employment relationships.
