Many business owners classify individuals that work for them as independent contractors rather than employees, which can lead to an audit from the Colorado Department of Labor & Employments (CDLE). Unfortunately, even for business owners who are aware of the relevant law and made good faith efforts to show that these individuals were true contractors (and not misclassified employees), it can be very difficult to successfully argue this with the CDLE.
We are very experienced in dealing with the CDLE. We are available to represent you from the audit stage through the appeals process, even up to the Colorado Court of Appeals (through our close association with Dennis M. Lanphier, P.C., a law firm run by one of our partners).
