Is Your Client An “Employee” Or “Independent Contractor”?, From NELA's 2013 Program Preventing Wage Theft: A Two-Day Guide To Litigating Cases Involving Wages, Hours & Work
Published by National Employment Lawyers Association

This panel of veteran practitioners offer practical pointers on how to litigate an independent contractor case. They address topics ranging from class and collective certification, depositions, how to respond to overbroad discovery requests seeking everything from the plaintiff’s tax returns to other non-relevant discovery requests unrelated to whether the employer had “control” over the plaintiff, summary judgment, decertification, and issues relating to “joint employers,” multiple defendants, and integrated enterprises.
