Independent Contractor v. Employee

March 29 @ 6:30 pm - 7:30 pm

a Primer on Employment Classification (independent contractor and employee) & Contract Issues for Creative Practitioners

How is “independent contractor” legally classified? Where do you draw the line for an employee? What contractual language stumps you? Do you actively negotiate with your clients? Do you recognize that the contract you accept with your signature impacts your local colleagues and the field of teaching artistry? Are you ready to stand united with other TAs and raise the standards of professionalism that will support all of us?

When you take a seat at the decision-making table, it’s essential to have the best information to support and advocate for our collective interests. Pay equity is a social justice issue that requires everyone’s attention. Now is a great time to join your mid-Atlantic colleagues (both independent contractors and employees) to get empowered about laws and regulations that affect all of us.

DC’s Devin Walker will host Adam Holofcener from the Maryland Volunteer Lawyers for the Arts. With better information and by standing together, we can seize opportunities to advocate for contract revisions that include higher compensation, benefits, and so much more.
