TELESEMINAR PRESENTED BY: Attorney Nancy Joerg
Join Wessels Sherman Shareholder and Senior Attorney Nancy Joerg "over the phone" for valuable strategies on How to Win IDES Audits on Independent Contractor Status. Nationally recognized in the independent contractor area of law, Attorney Nancy Joerg has represented hundreds of companies in Illinois Department of Employment Security (IDES) audits.
The IDES is the Illinois unemployment insurance benefits agency that audits companies to see (among other legal issues) whether their workers should be reclassified from independent contractor status to employee status. Reclassification can cost a company a lot of trouble and money! Attorney Joerg has assisted thousands of client companies with complex IDES Hearings and challenging audits on the difficult issue of whether particular workers are independent contractors or employees.
Attorney Joerg will explain, step by step, how to effectively deal with IDES auditors; how to properly and successfully represent independent contractor situations to an IDES hearing officer; how to handle and protest correspondence from the local IDES office; what you should and should not have in independent contractor agreements and independent contractor files—exactly what to say and do.Often a lot of money is at stake in these legal situations. Therefore, it is well worth your time to participate in this teleseminar if your company or your clients use independent contractors. Because of her national reputation in this field, Nancy Joerg was asked by Commerce Clearing House to author a book on independent contractor status. Ms. Joerg’s book, The World of Independent Contractors, has been widely acclaimed. She has written hundreds of articles on the independent contractor crisis in the United States and has been interviewed and quoted in the Chicago Tribune, New York Times, Washington Post, etc. This is a rare opportunity to gain valuable insight into the best ways to lower your liability in using independent contractors and win IDES audits! Don’t miss this fantastic teleseminar!

Attendees will gain an understanding of: classifying workers as independent contractors; step-by-step procedures to effectively deal with auditors; how to handle correspondence from the IDES office; and what independent contractor agreements should and should not have in them.
