Legislative Updates

Misclassification of Employees as Independent Contractors

LAP&FCA Position: Tighten laws to stop willful misclassification of employees as independent contractors. Misclassification of workers as independent contractors is a huge problem in the construction industry. Employers who misclassify gain unfair competitive marketplace advantages saving as much as 30% on labor costs. Loss of revenue to federal, state and local governments due to misclassification is enormous because of the loss of Social Security & Medicare taxes.


3% Withholding

LAP&FCA Position: Repeal the law enacted to require federal, state and local governments to withhold 3% from payments for goods and services due to tax evasion by some federal contractors.

Government should aggressively close the tax gap increased by non-tax compliant government but laws should not restrict the cash-flow of already tax-compliant contractors. Construction pre-tax profit margins rarely exceed 3% and the 3% withholding bears no relationship to taxable income.
