I have testified as an expert witness in Federal Court.

Professional Experiences

I frequently made deacons as to the employment relationship of workers both as an Investigator and as a Manager with the U.S. Department of Labor, Wage and Hour Division.  These decisions involved all sorts of businesses which utilized “independent contractors” or so-called “1099” workers.  I made these decisions in both non-agricultural and agricultural related businesses since it is a tactic many employers used to evade the requirements of the FLSA.  As a consultant, I am also frequently requested to make such determinations to ensure employer compliance with the FLSA.
