Kossuth County ECI Workshop:
Independent Contractor or Employee: Get Your Classification Right!

ALGONA, IOWA – Iowa Workforce Development and the Kossuth County Employers’ Council will present on August 26, 2009 – Independent Contractor or Employee: Get Your Classification Right! This session will focus on how to determine whether a worker is an “independent contractor” or an “employee.” Getting the classification correct is critical for tax, wage, unemployment, workers’ compensation, and other employment issues. Getting it wrong, can cost an employer money. A renewed enforcement emphasis by federal and state regulators requires that employers take a closer look at their classifications. Iowa Workforce Development Attorney Barbara Tapscott will present this hour long session using “real life” examples. The session will be held from 9:30 a.m. to 11:00 a.m. at Iowa Lakes Community College in Algona located at 2111 Hwy. 169 N, Algona, Iowa.
