According to the U.S. Department of Labor, there are two types of illegal harassment:

- Hostile work environment — the perpetrator’s unwelcome behavior results in an intimidating, offensive, or hostile workplace.
Identify Worker Categories
Employment Category Best Practices
While there is no uniform definition of an employee under all payroll laws, most workers can be classified as either employees or independent contractors once the common law test and reasonable basis test have been applied. The IRS, for example, relies on these tests in making worker status determinations for the purposes of federal income tax withholding and for the withholding and payment of employment (social security, Medicare, and federal unemployment) taxes.
The Department of Labor uses its own tests when determining whether workers are employees entitled to the minimum wage and overtime pay. Employers or the workers may receive a definitive IRS ruling as to a worker’s status by completing the Form SS-8 (Determination of Worker Status for Purposes of Federal Employment Taxes, and Income Tax Withholding). This training video highlights the repercussion of classifying workers incorrectly.
