    W-2 or 1099? Employee and Independent Contractor Issues - Views From the Government and Private Sector

    1 PM EDT

    A growing number of Americans are being hired under flexible work arrangements. These can take the form of app-based independent contractor arrangements (such as Uber and Lyft), temp arrangements, and the use of staffing firms. Panelists, including from the Internal Revenue Service Office of Chief Counsel, will discuss the associated benefits including providing workers with flexibility and employers with lower costs and risks such as heightened scrutiny about such arrangements in legislation, state and federal agency enforcement actions.

    Moderator: Henry Talavera, Polsinelli, Dallas, TX
    Panelists: Steve Flores, Winston & Strawn LLP, Chicago, IL
    Syd Gernstein, Attorney, Employment Tax Branch 1, Tax Exempt and Government Entities, Office of Chief Counsel, Internal Revenue Service, Washington, DC
    Celeste R. Yeager, Littler Mendelson PC, Dallas, TX
