The IRS 1099 independent contractor model can be the ideal setup for some employers and workers. However, the misclassification of workers — a risk that is significantly increased when housing independent contractors in a Human Resource Management System (HRIS) — can be costly. By understanding how to interact with independent contractors, how to train employees on their interactions with independent contractors, and what systems to use to document the difference between W-2 employees and 1099 contractors, you can take the necessary steps to mitigate the risk of an audit and class-action lawsuit. Register for and attend this online education program for expert insights and guidance for your business.
Meet the Speaker
Wendy Greenland has spent the last four-and-a-half years as a strategic executive leader at both HRIS and independent contractor management software platform companies. She has managed the daily operations for housing both W-2 employees and independent contractors in these platforms and has deep knowledge in understanding the importance of keeping the two separated along with best practices for doing so. She is currently the Chief Operating Officer at Openforce, which has 20 years of experience in independent contractor management, compliance, and risk mitigation.
Deborah Stevens is a leading authority on managing contingent workforces and creating legally defensible work environments. As Chief Compliance Officer at Openforce, she is responsible for overseeing the independent contractor compliance efforts and the Risk Management team. With a proven track record of quality-focused leadership in the transportation industry, she has come full circle in the legal arena, from serving as a paralegal in the U.S. Air Force managing contract law efforts to spending the last 15 years dedicated to 1099 workforce compliance and defense.
Chris Laverdure recently joined Openforce from ADP where he worked with clients in the workforce management and payment space to help them achieve the goals needed for revenue success. Over the last 12 years, Chris has worked with clients in various verticals including transportation, manufacturing, legal, and medical devices.
