Information

Why Attend?

  • Discover how Virginia’s new misclassification laws regarding independent contractor status will impact businesses using independent contractors
  • Identify ways to quantify potential exposure for misclassification in Virginia

Independent contractor status has become a hotly contested legal issue. In the past year alone many states, including Virginia, amended their independent contractor laws in an effort to reduce independent contractor misclassification. Virginia’s new misclassification laws, among other things, provide a private right of action for misclassification, establish a presumption of employee status, and set the standard for testing independent contractor status in Virginia. This seminar will provide practical information about how these new laws will impact those businesses using independent contractors, and in doing so:

  • Survey the current state of independent contractor litigation nationally
  • Provide an overview of Virginia’s new misclassification law
  • Discuss a practical approach for assessing independent contractor status under Virginia’s new laws
  • Identify ways to quantify potential exposure for misclassification in Virginia
  • Address arbitration in the independent contractor context
