In accordance with Executive Order 540, “Improving the performance of state government by implementing a
comprehensive strategic planning and performance management framework in the Executive departments,” the JTF
outlined the following strategic goals for 2013 – 2015 to the Governor:
- Increase education, coordination, and enforcement of the state’s labor, employment, licensing, and tax laws through the work of the Underground Economy Task Force;
- Increase revenue recovery through enforcement by inspection, audit, and information-sharing;
- Level the playing field for employers by publicizing JTF enforcement successes that will serve as a deterrent to cutting corners on labor, employment, licensing, and tax laws; and
- Evaluate the frequency and intensity of employee misclassification and underground economic activity among the Commonwealth’s industries through the undertaking of a research study.
