Employee Classification Act
Provides that individuals performing services for construction contractors on or after January 1, 2008 are presumed to be employees of the contractor unless they meet the criteria specified in Section 10 of the Act. If a contractor has misclassified employees as independent contractors, the Department may assess civil penalties and seek other remedies provided for in the Act. In addition, the Department must notify the Department of Employment Security, the Department of Revenue and the Workers' Compensation Commission who are required to check such contractor's compliance with their laws.
