03 Apr The Department of Labor and the ABC Test: A Regulatory Update
The Department of Labor pulled a Trump Administration rule that governed how to classify workers as independent contractors. That is a normal action, but the Biden Administration will likely impose the difficult ABC test for independent contractors which would then apply to all workers.
So even without federal legislation, there will be a federal regulation that will accomplish the same end — make it difficult for small businesses to employ independent contractors and for freelancers to work how they want to work.
