Senator Blumenthal to Discuss Independent Contractor Misclassification


(Hartford, CT) – On Monday, April 25, 2011, Senator Richard Blumenthal will join representatives of the construction industry and labor to discuss the serious impacts of the misclassification of employees by companies.  Misclassification of workers occurs when companies designate employees as “contractors” or “part-time” employees in order to avoid providing proper wages, taxes, and benefits.  This not only adversely affects targeted employees but also creates unfair competition for those contractors that abide by the law. Misclassification also adversely affects the budgets of state and local governments.


Blumenthal will address legislation he’s supporting in the Senate to curb the practice and create a level playing field for workers and businesses.


Below is a list of scheduled stops for Monday, April 25, 2011.
