Washington DC’s Attorney General Releases Report on Payroll Fraud in Construction

“Companies that illegally misclassify employees as independent contractors are stealing from workers, evading taxes, and gaining an unlawful edge over competitors,” said AG Racine. “The Office of the Attorney General commissioned this study to better understand the dynamics of worker misclassification and how we can fight it—and the economic analysis shows just how much this illegal practice costs workers and the community. Indeed, my office has already taken several companies to court to stop this kind of payroll fraud, and we will continue to act to protect workers when businesses violate the District’s labor laws.”
