Miami criminal law attorney David Bauer of The Bauer Brofsky Law Firm wrote an article called “The Misclassification of Independent Contractors: The Fifty-four Billion Dollar Problem”. It was published in Volume 12 of the Rutgers Journal of Law & Public Policy.
Miami, FL -- (SBWIRE) -- 02/15/2016 -- In the article Bauer discusses the problem many employers face when misclassifying workers as a means of skirting employment acts, avoiding liability, and saving on the costs of labor. An example used in the article involves a dishwasher working at a family restaurant who was being paid less than minimum wage and was not receiving any overtime. Bauer's article cites studies, employee rights, and the inability to entirely stop independent contractor misclassification, among other things.
