During the 2020 Session, the Virginia General Assembly enacted House Bill 1407 (2020 Acts of Assembly, Chapter 681) and Senate Bill 744 (2020 Acts of Assembly, Chapter 682), which sets forth the Virginia standard for classifying workers performing services for remuneration as employees or independent contractors. In addition, this legislation imposes civil penalties and debarment on certain employers that fail to properly classify an individual as an employee. 2023 House Bill 1684 (2023 Acts of Assembly, Chapter 518) and Senate Bill 1354 (2023 Acts of Assembly, Chapter 519) clarify the procedures under which an employer may be debarred from public contracts for misclassification of workers. As explained in these guidelines, this supersedes the Guidelines for the Classification of Workers dated September 30, 2021.
