Key Points

  • The Department of Labor and the IRS take employee classification very seriously. Misclassifying an employee as an independent contractor can lead to fines for USU.

  • Independent contractors are responsible for their own equipment, taxes, licenses, workers compensation insurance, business insurance, etc.
