Summary

This is very positive legislation for independent workers. Instead of forcing workers into employment status, this bill looks to clear a path to legally designate workers as independent contractors. Service providers would even be able to get confirmation from the U.S. Tax Court of their employment status, instead of waiting while the IRS bullies them into employment status. The bill was referred to the Senate Finance Committee, but we have very little confidence it will see any further legislative activity.
