Over the past few years, the IRS has embarked on a campaign of enforcement relating to the misclassification of workers as independent contractors, seeking to curtail hemorrhaging tax revenues. Similarly, numerous worker class action lawsuits have cropped up asserting violations of wage and hour laws through misclassification. This changing landscape of employment and tax law makes the hiring of artists, musicians, writers, and other entertainment professionals a precarious process. Join us for a discussion mapping out the potential pitfalls, legal challenges, and tax implications of classifying your workforce in the entertainment industry. A panel of experts will explore topics including potential liability to workers and the IRS, maintaining ownership of worker-generated intellectual property, and the applicability and effects of the Central Withholding Agreement on foreign nationals.
