Classification Non-Compliance is VERY Expensive

It can be as simple as having a salaried 20 hours a week person working part-time with no time card. If audited, that company will pay premiums on the other 20 hours plus a 20% penalty. In addition, there are insufficient records penalties equal to $1000 a year per employee, and if the auditor has to make dollar quotas, they can add on a misrepresentation penalty up to ten times the premium amount difference. I kid you not.

So, do yourself a favor. Find a competent classification audit reviewer each year to keep up with the changes in federal and state compliance workers’ compensation reporting. You will stay in business much longer.
