Testimony at Ohio House Hearing on HB 523 and Worker Misclassification
December 7, 2010
Misclassification of employees as independent contractors strips employees of their legal
protections, deprives government on all levels of billions of tax dollars and undercuts employers who do the right thing. House Bill 523 would provide tools needed in Ohio to combat misclassification. It would clarify and give uniformity to the definition of ‘employee’ across Ohio laws and administrative rules, providing needed protection for employee and employer alike. We appreciate the opportunity today to write in support of House Bill 523.
