"States, Strapped for Cash, Ramp Up Employment Classification Audits"



"Is a worker an employee or independent contractor? The legal distinction between the two often is clear as mud, but the consequence for guessing 'independent contractor' when the answer is 'employee' can be a huge bill to employers for back wages (especially overtime) and back taxes."
