Worker Misclassification

March 14, 2024

A worker’s classification as an employee or an independent contractor affects the legal rights and obligations of the worker and their employer; misclassifying workers is prohibited by law. We found Minnesota has neither an adequate nor coordinated approach for ensuring that Minnesota workers are properly classified. We make a number of recommendations to improve the state’s approach to addressing worker misclassification.

Please provide feedback on OLA’s evaluation reports by completing this brief questionnaire.
