Employment Development Department Claims and Audits
The EDD collects employer payroll taxes and administers unemployment and disability benefits. EDD decisions are reviewable by the California Unemployment Insurance Appeals Board, a quasi-judicial body with the capacity to issue binding legal precedent. EDD claims and audits can potentially jeopardize the future of a business. With specialized experience and expertise in matters before the EDD and CUIAB, Marron Lawyers secures favorable findings, as well as reversed or reduced payroll tax assessments for its clients. We are well-versed in the law concerning workers’ status as independent contractors, and we understand the factors the EDD and CUIAB consider when investigating the classification of workers as employees or independent contractors. We represent businesses undergoing company-wide audits by the EDD, and we take pride in our ability to cooperate with EDD, all the while ensuring that payroll records are presented in an effective and thorough manner, demonstrating compliance.
