Lederman Bonding Company v.

Appeal Number: 
Decision Date: 
Thursday, December 22, 2011

On February 16, 2011, Justin Demsky, a Field Auditor for Iowa Workforce Development (“IWD”) completed a missing wage investigation and determined that an employee-employer relationship existed between the appellant, Lederman Bonding Company, and Brandi Stites, one of its workers. IWD issued a decision on June 13, 2011, stating that Ms. Stites was determined to be an employee, and that any remuneration paid to her by the appellant was reportable for unemployment insurance contribution purposes beginning with the second quarter of 2010. Lederman Bonding Company timely appealed.
