Are You Classifying Your Employees Correctly?

Misclassification is a common HR Mistake



All employees are classified as either Exempt or Non-Exempt. Some companies hire independent contractors, but are they properly classified as such? What about interns? Are they really employees that must be paid?


Getting the classification of each employee correct is critically important, yet misclassification is one of the top human resources mistakes that plague companies of all sizes.


The U.S. Department of Labor is cracking down now more than ever on this issue. Violating the classification laws can prove to be a very costly mistake for employers. Understanding and complying with the laws will keep your business clear of trouble.


Join Andy Bennett from Alliant Human Resources for a FREE workshop on Employee Classification. You will gain an in-depth understanding of the definitions of:


  • Exempt vs. Non-exempt employee

  • Salary vs. Hourly

  • Independent Contractor

  • Intern

  • Full-time and Part-time employees

No business can afford to be misclassifying workers. You need to learn about this important topic before you find yourself in a lawsuit. Take advantage of this great opportunity to get it right.
