In an era of shrinking budgets and workforces, employers often look to supplement their workforces through the use of independent contractors, retired annuitants, or volunteers.  Yet, the use of any of the “alternative workforces” carries with it significant risks, particularly in light of recent legislation imposing new penalties for misclassifying employees as independent contractors and restricting the circumstances under which public agencies may employ retired annuitants.  This presentation will address the risks associated with utilization of independent contractors, retired annuitants, and volunteers, including the requirements imposed by new legislation that took effect in 2012.
