Worker Classification

Worker Classification Made Easy

Employers are well aware of the consequences of misclassifying an employee as an independent contractor. The failure to withhold income taxes on behalf of a worker improperly classified as an independent contractor can result in federal and/or state tax liability. Unprovided employee benefits and unpaid workers’ compensation, unemployment compensation, overtime, and/or minimum wage can lead to crippling financial penalties and class-action lawsuits. The failure to exercise proper control over a worker can expose an employer to potential vicarious liability charges.
Employee Classification

At VirgilHR, we understand the importance of simplicity and convenience. That’s why we’ve developed a worker classification tool that assists organizations in distinguishing between employees and independent contractors. As a follow-up to our employee classification tool, which helps employers determine whether an employee should be designated as either nonexempt or exempt under federal and state wage and hour laws, the worker classification tool completes the classification portion of the onboarding module and allows employers to classify workers with confidence.
