SCORE-Staten Island Webinar to Highlight Importance of Distinguishing Between Contractors and Employees

STATEN ISLAND, N.Y. – If you are an employer without a clear understanding of worker-classification regulations, it could be costly. Seeking to help small-business owners avoid noncompliance, and alert accountants and tax preparers of this issue, SCORE-Staten Island will shed light on such regulations during its next webinar, “Independent Contractor or Employee: Do You Know the Difference?

Sponsored by Richmond County Savings Bank (a division of New York Community Bank, member FDIC), the free workshop will take place via Zoom Thursday, June 9, 1 to 2 p.m.

“The U.S. Department of Labor (DOL) and the IRS are stepping up enforcement of worker-classification regulations, and in today’s part-time economy, it may be harder than ever to avoid penalties,” warns Karen Hall, a human resources consultant at PAYCHEX, who will conduct the workshop.

Hall, a Society for Human Resource Management-Certified Professional (SHRM-CP) with over 25 years of relevant experience, will highlight a variety of related topics during the workshop, such as: The current DOL definitions of independent contractors and employees; employer (business owner) responsibilities as they apply to the diverse types of workers; methods of determining worker classification; misclassification concerns and consequences, and common misclassification mistakes. Questions from webinar attendees will also be addressed.


Registration for the webinar is available online at Those seeking additional information are encouraged to leave a message for Marie at SCORE (718-727-1221) with their phone number and email address.
