Miss-classifying healthcare workers? Find Out Here!

Misclassification of healthcare workers refers to the practice of improperly classifying workers as independent contractors (1099) rather than employees (W2) in the healthcare industry. This can result in workers being denied important benefits and protections, such as minimum wage, overtime pay, and access to healthcare benefits [1].

The misclassification of healthcare workers has become a growing concern in recent years, with many employers facing lawsuits over the practice [2]. In some cases, misclassification is intentional, with companies seeking to avoid paying overtime and other benefits required under the law. In other cases, misclassification is unintentional, with companies simply not understanding the legal requirements for classifying workers [3].

It's important for healthcare companies to properly classify their workers to ensure compliance with labor laws and to protect the rights of their employees. The Department of Labor provides guidance on how to properly classify workers, and companies should consult with legal counsel to ensure they are in compliance [4].
