Being a successful independent contractor or a Client of Choice isn’t just about doing the best work or having the best perks. It also means staying one step ahead of the curve. That’s why each week we bring you The Weekly Independent, a quick-hit digest of news of note from around the web.

  • Spend Matters looks at the emerging ecosystem of sourcing and engaging the independent workforce.
  • Uber agrees to pay $20 million to settle an independent contractor lawsuit, TechCrunch reports.
  • In an important decision for the oil and gas industry, the United States Court of Appeals for the Fifth Circuit ruled that directional drillers are independent contractors and not employees, Lexology summarizes.

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 Twitter, Facebook and LinkedIn, and we’ll see you again next week!
