The Weekly Independent: January 21, 2019

   |   MBO Partners   |   January 21, 2019


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.

  • A Wall Street Journal opinion piece discusses the growth of highly-skilled, high-end independent talent.
  • The U.S. Supreme Court ruled that legal disputes between carriers and independent contractors can’t be forced into arbitration even if the independent contractor agreement includes an arbitration clause. However, the decision may have little impact on independent contractor misclassification claims, JD Supra says.
  • Spend Matters explores the issue of payment and financial limitations that may be constraining the growth of the independent workforce.
  • More workers are ruled potential employees, and not independent contractors in a California court case involving the status of in-home caregivers, Lexology reports.

Should you have any questions, we’re always here for you.

Of course, we’d love to talk virtually as well. Share your thoughts with us at MBO Partners on TwitterFacebook, and LinkedIn, and we’ll see you again next week!
