Did you know, someone you consider an “independent contractor” may actually be a worker with legal protections that cannot be waived? In some cases, you may be an employer with workers that require workers’ compensation coverage and not realize it! It is important to understand your requirements when contracting with workers. Otherwise, your business may be vulnerable to unexpected regulatory penalties and even lawsuits.
During this virtual webinar on March 22, 2022, viewers learned about regulations, requirements and resources from subject matter experts from the Washington State Department of Labor & Industries that help businesses make better decisions as they work to increase productivity in the workplace.
THANK YOU to Bryan Jewell, Technical Expert at the Washington State Department of Labor & Industries and Holly Smith, Workers' Comp Determinations Specialist at the Washington State Department of Labor & Industries.
