Pennsylvania Governor Shapiro’s promise to crack down on misclassifying workers is apparently holding true. The Pennsylvania Department of Labor and Industry says it’s collected more than 301-thousand-dollars in fines under the law that bars construction companies from misclassifying workers. The haul represents a 33 percent increase from the same period in 2022. The so-called misclassifications typically happen when companies label employees as independent contractors instead of paying them as full-time employees. They do that to avoid paying benefits and taxes on behalf of people who should be considered employees.
