Navigating the Workplace Fraud Act and Senate Bill 853 (General Contractor’s Liability for Unpaid Wages)
January 23, 2019 @ 8:30 am - 10:00 am
Under Maryland’s Workplace Fraud Act, workers in the construction industries are presumed to be employees of the person or business for whom they perform services. However, construction businesses are not required to treat all workers with whom they have a working relationship as employees if the worker is, in fact, an independent contractor under the law.
So, who is an independent contractor under Maryland law and what are your obligations under the Workplace Fraud Act? We will explore Maryland’s independent contractor tests and delve into your obligations under the Workplace Fraud Act.
We will also provide you with practical guidance regarding Maryland’s new law (SB 853) that holds general contractors strictly liable for their subcontractors’ wage and hour violations, which would, of course, include worker misclassification.
This seminar is lead by Michael A. Schollaert & Donna Glover with Baker, Donelson, Bearman, Caldwell & Berkowitz, P.C.
