Employer liable for additional taxes where event managers were considered employees

By Payroll and Entitlements Editorial Staff

The court affirmed the Board's finding that an outsource procurement company, which provides a network of event managers to its clients for corporate, medical. and other business seminars and meetings, was liable for additional unemployment insurance contributions on remuneration paid to claimant, a professional meeting manager, and others similarly situated. The company provided an extensive reference guide setting forth its policies and procedures, including pre-event preparations and post-meeting responsibilities. It also specified acceptable behavior, enumerated prohibited conduct and activities, implemented a dress code, and imposed disciplinary measures for unsatisfactory performance or noncompliance with standards and expectations set forth in the reference guide. The evidence thus established the company's continued contact and involvement with the meeting managers throughout an assignment (In the Matter of Brian Brown, N.Y. Sup. Ct., App. Div., Third Dept., No. 529794, June 24, 2021).
