Misclassification Crackdown in Pennsylvania

We got this one from one of the friends of Construction Citizen, John Hinson in Dallas.

Pennsylvania enacted a misclassification law last month and within a week, officials had begun cracking down on the violators across the state.

Pennsylvania television station WFMZ/69 News quoted John Morganelli, district attorney in Northampton County, as saying "Essentially, this law attempts to level the playing field between businesses that classify their employees properly as employees, and those who are bad actors under the current system.”  

Called the Construction Workplace Misclassification Act, this law is characteristic of other laws being enacted in states across the country.  The debate in Congress will be an interesting one since there are bills in both the House and Senate that have been introduced which will address the issue on a national basis.
