Job Creators Network Slams Biden Administration’s New Independent Contracting Rule

Alfredo Ortiz, president and CEO of Job Creators Network, released the following statement on the Biden Administration’s independent contracting final rule released today:
“As small businesses and all Americans continue to be crushed by Bidenomics and Bidenflation, President Biden’s Department of Labor steps in with an independent contractor rule that will upend the way America’s economy works today. The rule is a gut punch to small businesses and workers alike because it will destroy the gig economy, penalize independent contractors, and reward labor unions. Although the Biden Administration touts the rule as creating a clear standard for workers and businesses, it is anything but. Understanding who is and is not an independent contractor will only be sorted out through decades of litigation. In the meantime, the small business owners of America will be sitting ducks, not knowing when their worker classifications will result in a lawsuit or enforcement action.”
