Staying on top of your field means staying ahead of the biggest news stories. That’s why each week we bring you The Weekly Independent, a quick-hit digest of news of note from around the web.
- The Labor Department has updated their website, removing links that provided guidance on how to interpret employer-employee relationships, joint employment, and independent contractor misclassification, Bloomberg reports.
- The Supreme Court agreed to hear the appeal of a case involving a large trucking carrier and a long-haul driver over whether labor disputes brought by independent contractors can be forced into arbitration.
- Here’s how blockchain could re-balance the freelancer-employer dynamic.
Of course, we’d love to talk virtually as well. Share your thoughts with us at MBO Partners on Twitter, Facebook, and LinkedIn, and we’ll see you again next week!
