How does the ICIS work in defense/claims?

This is a rapidly developing area of the law. An ICIS can help support an inference that workers are correctly classified as independent contractors by separating out all elements of their treatment by the hiring entity, by enforcing pre-defined onboarding and settlement workflows, and by preserving data and audit trails related to onboarding. In addition, depending on the plan selected with an ICIS such as Openforce, defense costs for agency-level claims is sometimes included.
