New ASA Legal Line Video for Members: Risks of Worker Misclassification

Most staffing agencies classify the workers they send to clients as employees. However, some online platforms that use phone apps to place certain health care workers in hospitals and other health care facilities are classifying the workers as independent contractors. This could be a red flag.

The ASA Legal Line monthly video series features a member of the association’s legal team and addresses critical legal, regulatory, and legislative topics that have direct implications for your business. In the latest installment, ASA senior counsel Ed Lenz discusses the risks involved in misclassifying workers as independent contractors and explains how to protect your business.

Watch the latest ASA Legal Line video, then join the conversation on ASA Central. The ASA Legal Line monthly video series is sponsored by Essential StaffCARE, an ASA corporate partner.
