Are you correctly classifying your employees and your independent contractors? Washington State employers will be required to significantly increase their employee’s wages beginning January 1, 2021. New guidelines are being proposed for Independent Contractors. What do these changes mean for your bottom line and how can you address it now to prepare for the new year? The Department of Labor and Industries increased the minimum salary threshold for your salaried workers even more than the new federal limits that went into effect July 1, 2020. Employees may only be classified as salaried exempt if their pay meets the minimum weekly wage AND meets the duties testing requirements. Now is a great time to review the exempt duties testing requirements and implement best practices for employee classifications for your salaried workers and independent contractors. This hour-long training course is designed to help you navigate these changes and assist you in making changes beginning the first of the New Year. Sign Up Today!
