Joint- and Multi-Employer, Independent Contractor, and Temp Worker Employment Law and OSHA Issues
Employers’ perceptions about their legal responsibilities for certain workers is not always reality. Although an employer may classify workers as temporary workers or independent contractors, that does not mean the Department of Labor takes the same view. At the tail end of the Obama Administration, DOL was vocal about its belief that most workers should be treated as employees, insinuating that in most cases, employers will be accountable for the specific obligations of an employer-employee relationship. Additionally, employers may have certain obligations and potential liability depending on their role at multi-employer worksites or in joint employer situations. DOL has been cracking down on employee misclassification and division of responsibility among multiple employers.
