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 National Labor Relations Board (NLRB) continues their determination of whether or not independent contractor misclassification violates the National Labor Relations Act.
  • 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.
  • A Massachusetts state Appeals Court ruled that delivery drivers for the Patriot Ledger newspaper are employees and not independent contractors.
  • These 10 countries are the best places in which be your own boss.

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!
