ME Publishes 2010 Misclassification Annual Report

                               

Portland, ME (CompNewsNetwork) - On January 14, 2009, Governor Baldacci issued an Executive Order establishing a Joint Task Force on Employee Misclassification.  Misclassification occurs when an employer hires a worker and improperly classifies the person as an “independent contractor” rather than as an “employee”.

The Task Force is charged with examining the problem of employee misclassification, developing ways of improving communication and information sharing among  task force and other public agencies, coordinating and strengthening enforcement mechanisms among state agencies and between the state  and other jurisdictions, increasing public awareness of the illegality of and harms inflicted by misclassification, working cooperatively with affected groups to disseminate information and improve methods of identifying and reporting potential violations, and making recommendations for regulatory or statutory changes that would strengthen enforcement efforts.
