Employment Law Basics
March 2, 2021 @ 2:00 pm - 3:30 pm
A free webinar as part of Mass Cultural Council’s Recover, Rebuild, Renew Series.
This workshop reviews essential principles of employment law, chiefly, (1) defining the employer’s obligations to employees with respect to hiring, termination, compensation, and benefits, (2) explaining the distinctions between an employee and an independent contractor, and (3) identifying common (but serious) employment pitfalls, including deferring compensation, misclassifying employees as independent contractors, and failing to pay payroll taxes.
Format: The format of the first workshop will be a 1.5-hour virtual webinar. The session will consist of important content, followed by a panel consisting of an employment attorney, a business insurance broker, and a human resources consultant.
Outcomes: At the end of this session, participants will be able to understand the legal foundations of a traditional employer-employee relationship, fundamental employment law vocabulary, how to spot and avoid potential employment-related legal issues, and howto apply for individualized legal assistance from the Volunteer Lawyers for the Arts.
Presented by: Lucas Blackadar, Esq., Director of Legal Services, Arts & Business Council of Greater Boston.
