Making the Right Decisions on Worker Classifications: Independent Contractors v. Employees? Exempt v. Non-Exempt?

August 1, 2023 | 10:00a.m. – 11:00a.m. PST | 30 Days of On-Demand Access to Follow


In this presentation, Barran Liebman Co-Managing Partner Andrew Schpak will help employers demystify the complex issue of worker classifications.  In doing so, he will cover the important legal distinction between independent contractors and employees, including the key legal tests relevant to that analysis.  He will also cover exempt vs. non-exempt employee classifications and best practices for tailoring positions to ensure compliance with wage and hour laws.


Key learning objectives will include the following:

  1. Explore the costs and risks of misclassification, as well as how misclassification cases typically arise.

  2. Understand the legal tests relevant to determining whether a worker can be properly classified as an independent contractor. 

  3. Learn the statutory framework that defines those classified as exempt versus those classified as non-exempt.

  4. Discuss best practices for how to define roles and treat workers in order to maximize the likelihood that classifications will be upheld under legal scrutiny.
