Recreation Law Center Case: Employee or Independent Contractor? The Difference Really Matters!
Organizations must make choices between how to characterize an individual they engage for work. Is the individual an employee or independent contractor? As you’ll see in this Connecticut case, the issue can dictate an organization’s liability for harm to injured participants. Tax consequences, exposure to worker injuries and penalties are other issues that can befall an unenlightened employer. Learn about how to manage your risk and liability from Recreation Law legal experts Reb Gregg and Catherine Hansen-Stamp at the Recreation Law Center.
