NLRB: Simply Misclassifying Workers Doesn’t Violate Federal Labor Law

OMA Connections Partner Bricker & Eckler LLP reports that the National Labor Relations Board (NLRB) recently issued a decision in employers’ favor by holding that misclassification of an employee as an independent contractor, by itself, does not violate the National Labor Relations Act (NLRA). Employers are still advised to continue to exercise caution and consult legal counsel when making classifications since misclassifications can bring significant liability under other employment laws and regulations. 10/21/2019
