WALNUT CREEK, CA--(Marketwire - December 1, 2010) - Angela De La Housaye, founder of the Walnut Creek commercial litigation firm, De La Housaye & Associates, will present a talk on 1099 Contractors versus Employees and other critical employment issues now facing businesses on Thursday, December 9 at 6:15 PM at 44 Montgomery Street, San Francisco.

The presentation will cover such topics as the definition of employees and contractors, the benefits of one designation over another, the potential liabilities for miscategorizing a worker and the retirement plans and tax reduction strategies available to 1099 contractors and small businesses. 

"The most hotly litigated business law claims over the last five years include employment related cases, comprising a significant percentage of the claims filed against businesses in state courts as well as federal courts," said Angela De La Housaye, founder of De La Housaye & Associates. 

"We find that, despite this fact, very few employers really take the time to seek the necessary qualified legal advice about properly categorizing employees and independent contractors correctly and consequently face potential claims, penalties and hearings. That's what we want to address in this presentation so businesses will take a proactive stance and face these issues with knowledge and insight," Ms. De La Housaye continued.

The December 9 talk is complimentary, but space is limited and reservations are required. Contact Heather Larsen at 925-944-3300 or heather@delahousayelaw.com for information or to sign up.
