RSI Awarded Joint Task Force on the Underground Economy and Employee Misclassification Study

December 7, 2012.  Pembroke, MA – Revenue Solutions, Inc. (RSI), a company that specializes in providing revenue and compliance management products and services specifically to federal, state and local government Tax and Revenue agencies, was recently selected by the Massachusetts Department of Revenue (MA DOR) to assist with a study for the Joint Task Force (JTF) on the Underground Economy and Employee Misclassification. The JTF was created by Governor Deval Patrick in March 2008 to better coordinate the Commonwealth’s attempt to eliminate workplace fraud and employee misclassification.  The Executive Order calls for the Task Force member agencies to address the underground economy cooperatively based on the following objectives:

  • educate business owners and employees about applicable requirements;
  • conduct joint, targeted investigations and enforcement actions;
  • protect the health, safety and benefit rights of workers; and
  • restore competitive equality for law-abiding businesses.

RSI will work with the Task Force member agencies to further define, execute and refine the data analysis to be used for the study. This analysis will be used by the JTF for improved estimates of the scope of the problem and the impact this issue has on the Commonwealth. The findings will help the JTF to provide direction to various Commonwealth agencies to address the problem of workplace fraud and employee misclassification.  The work that is done by RSI will become part of the JTF’s report to the Governor.
