Cotney has published a variety of articles as well as taught lectures for national audiences on the nuances of the economic realities test, the ABC test, and other tests regarding the misclassification of independent contractors.  We have extensive experience in defending companies against Department of Labor wage and hour audits based on misclassification as well as state agency equivalents.

Our firm also defends claims asserted by other state and federal agencies against employers, including workers’ compensation, immigration, tax, and OSHA claims.
