In the near future your store may be required to add some new employees that you’ve considered independent contractors. This is due to new Department of Labor (DOL) guidelines that more narrowly define who may be considered an independent contractor and who may be an employee.
To retain your installers as independent contractors DOL will expect you to undertake an analysis that focuses on both control and economic independence for each of your installers. These new DOL guidelines could have a tremendous impact on your business operations and, at the very least, you need to be fully informed on this topic.
Executive Advantage is a human resources consulting firm that represents many clients who use independent contractors. We have begun to work with them in conducting their analysis. Dave Griggs of Dave Griggs’ Flooring America has suggested we offer a workshop for flooring company owners, managers and subcontractor principals to assist in understanding the challenges these new guidelines may pose to your company and to provide some sample checklists and contracts that might be used in your analysis process.
Join us for a symposium on these DOL changes and what you need to know.
