In this session, we are joined by the President of Cadre, Todd Taranto, and Dawn Penfold, President of MeetingJobs. Very few industries look to freelancers to get things done as much as the meetings world. From contract planners to on-site staff, clients rely on thousands of freelance event professionals to help them deal with business volume peaks and valleys, but what are risks of employee misclassification? What is at stake, and what steps can you take to compliantly use these valuable resources and mitigate your risk when contracting your freelancers?

Specifically, in this 30 Minute Monday, you will learn about …

  • Learn the difference between how authorities classify employees and freelancers, and the risks of misclassification, in order to better understand what is at stake.
  • Obtain strategies to more compliantly contract your freelance event team to reduce your hiring risk.
  • Gain first-hand knowledge from an industry veteran that had to deal with the legal pressures and financial fines from misclassification so you don't have to.
