Every employer should audit their workforce on a generally routine basis. If you haven’t audited your workforce, then this may serve as encouragement for you to analyze your work force’s positions to determine whether your workers are properly classified. Learn about the newly instituted rule approved by the Department of Labor governing the classification of members within your workforce that will be effective beginning March 11, 2024 that repealed the old standard issued in 2021 and dive into each one of the factors to begin assessing your workforce.

• Discuss the new 2024 Department of Labor guidance which instituted the age old 6 factor “economic reality test” when considering whether an employee or contractor is properly classified.
• Endeavor to build an understanding in each of the factors so that you can at least begin the process of determining whether an individual is properly classified within your workforce.
• Discuss how that rule is applied not only by the DOL but also other agencies and the Courts, both on a federal level and state of Florida level.
• Learn some HR tips to reviewing and documenting that you have assessed and determined that your workers are properly classified under the new guidelines.
