Business bLAWg WBIX AM1260 – Classifying Independent Contractors – June 24, 2017

Listen to the Business bLAWg on WBIX AM1260 with the lawyers from Boston business law and business litigation law firm, The Jacobs Law LLC. On this show, we discuss common issues small business owners deal with when classifying workers as independent contractors. Any business that uses independent contractors in Massachusetts should be certain that these workers are classified properly. The failure to do so can – and very often does – result in statutorily mandated penalties of treble damages, attorney’s fees and costs as well as personal liability.

We review the criteria and some facts to help small business owners understand how to properly classify workers. We also review the facts and decisions from some recent cases to give small business owners some context.
