How can you be sure your agency is complying with the Fair Labor Standards Act? Don’t worry, we’ve got your back. We’ve brought expert Jon Pesky aboard for an in-depth webinar on February 3rd designed to answer your questions about the laws surrounding independent contractors.
There’s a lot of confusion for insurance agency leaders when it comes to employment laws. The line between an employee and an independent contractor is thin, fuzzy and increasingly important for agency decision makers to understand.
Even though an "independent contractor” is different from an “employee”, the exact definition of either role has yet to be set in stone. And despite the ambiguity between roles, failure to be compliant can result in lawsuits, compensatory and punitive damages, as well as damage to your reputation.
During this one-hour session, Jon will help you prevent any unwanted surprises by drilling down on the federal law aspects of the Fair Labor Standards Act and whether that producer of yours is truly an independent contractor or actually an employee.
