The misclassification of employees is one of the most common errors made by employers. The U.S. Department of Labor defines misclassification as “a worker who is an employee under the law but is incorrectly classified as something other than an employee (usually an independent contractor).” Workers who are classified as independent contractors under tax or state law, may still be classified as an employee under the federal Fair Labor Standards Act (FLSA).
