Employee or No?  How the IRS Determines Employment Status of Individuals with Disabilities

Presented by: Joanmarie Dowling, Partner for Dowling Law, PLLC

Many organizations providing rehabilitative services have grappled with whether (and when) individuals should be classified as employees. The IRS has issued a number of determination letters that outline the factors they will consider when making a determination as to employment status.  This presentation will help attendees with their own agency policies/strategies on this issue by:

  • Discussing IRS private letter rulings and what they do - and don’t do;
  • Identifying key factors that the IRS uses to assess employment status;
  • Reviewing the categories or “classes” of workers that the IRS has outlined in guidance documents;
  • Comparing IRS determinations with rules applied by other agencies; and
  • Outlining some of the key benefits and challenges of classifying individuals as non-employees.


We hope that you will join us as we discuss this very important issue affecting rehabilitation agencies across New York State!
