SECRETS OF AGENCY, EMPLOYMENT AND CONTRACTING OUT
(One Day)

There are three ways work is done - by Agents, by Employees, or by Independent Contractors. Each has different laws, rights and responsibilities. Confusing the categories can have major legal consequences... Contractors can be deemed employees... Employees can be acting as Agents yet not be personally liable for their own mistakes... Contractors can avoid liability for negligence… These and many more situations can expose your company to legal jeopardy.
