Many arts education organizations rely on part-time teaching artists, but are these artist-educators employees or independent contractors? The answer is: it depends. During this interactive webinar, we discuss why correct employee/independent contractor classification matters, identify factors in determining correct classification, and address what to do if you think that you have misclassified your teaching artists. We also examine real-life examples from nonprofit education organizations.
