Employee v IC - More clarification from DOL


Yes, I have regrets. There are things I wish I hadn't done . . ..things I should have done, but indeed, there are many things I'm happy to have done. It's all in a lifetime.

Truly more clarification is needed, the current law is written so ambiguous it leads to clearly defined abuses.

My lawyer has gone to extreme lengths to keep me in compliance, not to mention my accountant.

The cost of this compliance is staggering, believe it or not federal contractors are the worst offenders. Most federal contracts have vary little over-site. Contrary to popular held conceptions of the current law.

Foremost the influx of illegals being pickup by the larger corporations and 1099 are the 2nd leader in miss-classifications of IC's. But our industry is small fish compared to the larger construction company's which are 3 largest user of IC's.

We have all seen the CL adds for IC's being offered hourly wages for this or that, whether law and the IRS catches up with them depend on what congress does with their budgets. After all the IRS and DOL scandals of late means there's not a mood in congress to give these 2 Dept more money to enforce the current laws broken as it is even more enforcement powers or budgets for that matter.

As we already know the DOL board was stacked in favor of the unions and we know how much the union love IC's, mostly due to the fact it keeps their wages up because company's are allowed to sub work out to reduce cost.

A win, win for unions. The allocation of funds to enforce current law is severely lacking thus a clear clarification is in order, which is why more on DOL IC's clarification is needed and coming which will allow a pin point enforcement of the law so funds of enforcement are not wasted.

But with less than 2 years left of this current administration left, new appointments are just around the corner, so their could be a rush to rewrite the laws governing companies access to IC's.

But there is the undeniable fact that the IRS and DOL budgets are going to get slashed servilely because of the abuse of both agencies over the last years.

So give me a clear clarification of the law so i can reduce the hours needed to pay this lawyer and accountant and save me some money.

I hope you regionals, and Sub-par subbers are paying close attention.

I am involved in two cases...one with FAS...they have settled and one against AMS...

The AMS will be the biggie as we did the HUD contract for them....MCS has been attached to this one...

Can you post some kind of a link to these cases? I admit I am ignorant and clueless as to what's going on but am interested in following it. I've been around PP for 7 years and haven't heard any of this, but I do try to stay off radars and keep my head low and just make money. What are the charges against AMS/MCS? What is the money trail in a settlement/judgement?

So you aren't actually involved more than you are just following the case. Poor attempt at trying to make yourself sound important...The Brian Williams effect has struck again.
