Michigan cracks down on misclassified workers

The Governor of Michigan has created a task force to develop strategies that will help strengthen the rules against misclassified workers.

When corporations misclassify workers as independent contractors it deprives them of basic legal protection and costs taxpayers more money. A misclassification of a worker also deprives the worker of workers’ compensation benefits, so if the workers suffers an injury he or she will not be covered by the insurance policy that most business carry.

If you or a loved one has been injured on the job, contact the Detroit workers’ compensation lawyers of Ravid & Associates, P.C. by calling 866-644-6587.
