Webinar: IDES Audits & Independent Contractors Webinar

April 16, 2015 10:30 am
April 16, 2015 12:00 pm
Laurie Silvey

Taught by attorney Nancy Joerg of Wessels Sherman Register

Nationally recognized in the independent contractor area of law, Attorney Nancy Joerg has
represented hundreds of companies in Illinois Department of Employment Security (IDES) audits.

The IDES is the Illinois unemployment insurance benefits agency that audits companies to see (among other legal issues) whether their workers should be reclassified from independent contractor status to employee status. Reclassification can cost a company a lot of trouble and money! Attorney Joerg has assisted thousands of client companies with complex IDES Hearings and challenging audits on the difficult issue of whether particular workers are independent contractors or employees.

Attorney Joerg will explain, step by step, how to effectively deal with IDES auditors; how to properly and successfully represent independent contractor situations to an IDES hearing officer; how to handle and protest correspondence from the local IDES office; what you should and should not have in independent contractor agreements and independent contractor files—exactly what to say and do.

Often a lot of money is at stake in these legal situations. Therefore, it is well worth your time to participate in this webinar if your company or your clients use independent contractors.
