Connecticut Independent Mortgage Brokers Association offers live webinar.
While a renewed interest in employee classifications started in Califorinia, it is spreading across the country. The recent California Dynamex Case codified the terms under which a “worker” can be classified as an independent contractor under the “ABC” Test (Assembly Bill 5). The California law takes effect January 1, 2020 and many states are following suit. In March 2020, the CA Supreme Court will rule on whether the bill can be retroactive; a descision which many businesses will be interested in come spring.
Considering the income potential of loan originators, misclassifying “workers” as 1099 independent contractors is a costly mistake for mortgage companies.
As non-depository mortgage lenders and brokers grow marketshare, the more scrutiny the industry may face from regulators.
In this webinar we discuss:
- The “ABC” test to determine proper worker classification
- The Memorandum of Understanding between the IRS and the Federal Department of Labor
- Why this issue is important for all states and the federal government
- How employers get caught
- Back taxes, penalties and interest – a financial burden you may not recover from
- Why we expect more enforcement than in the past
- What you should do TODAY to protect your business
