Construction Workplace Misclassification Act – Act No. 72

The Construction Workplace Misclassification Act regulates when contractors may identify their workers as independent contractors for payroll and tax purposes. This act must be understood in light of the Unemployment Compensation Act, which requires employers to pay a small percentage of each employee’s, but not independent contractor’s, earnings in unemployment compensation tax. Failure to abide by these regulations can trigger criminal prosecution and heavy fines.
