Contingent Workforce

FordHarrison has extensive experience representing both consumers and providers of contingent workers, including PEOs and staffing companies.

For both providers and clients of contingent worker services, laws impacting the proper classifications of workers, and which entities should be held responsible for compliance with worker rights are complex.  Federal and state employment laws have differing methods for determining whether a joint employment or co-employment relationship exists.  This is especially difficult for multi-state employers, PEOs and staffing companies.
