Aiding and Abetting the Misclassification of Employee as an Independent Contractor

WARNING!  A third-party, such as an accountant, advisor or HR Services Company, can be held potentially liable for the damages and liabilities arising and flowing from an employer’s misclassification of an employee as independent contractor.  A third-party who advises or even provides the independent contractor paperwork can be held liable for the misclassification, even when the claimant was not their employee.
