Welcome to January’s edition of HR Hot Topics! We’re kicking off 2023 with an episode on the newly proposed independent contractor rule from the Department of Labor. Independent contractor (1099) status has always been a challenging area for employers to navigate. What it means to be truly ‘independent’ seems to change with each administration and court decision. Just when you think you have a handle on the key criteria that should be used in your decision-making process, the rules change. This year is shaping up to be more of the same.
