Davis & Gilbert Labor & Employment Breakfast Seminar:
Consultants, Temporary Workers, and Shared Employees: The Changing Legal Landscape

March 2015

Employers often need to quickly adapt their workforce in response to evolving business needs. To meet critical demand for personnel, many companies hire temporary employees and consultants, or engage professionals who are employed by staffing agencies to work alongside full-time employees. Several recent legal developments have required employers to more closely examine the risks associated with engaging these types of workers.

This seminar will address how companies that engage temporary and shared employees can manage risk in several areas, including:

  • Misclassification risks related to consultants who are treated as independent contractors
  • Instances when companies can be deemed the “joint employer” of staffing agency employees
  • The use of pre-employment background checks
  • Paid sick leave laws in New York City and other jurisdictions
  • Affordable Care Act rules impacting companies that engage temporary employees, including those from staffing firms
