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.

  • A California bill would grant four exemptions for the court’s independent contractor test, but not exempt Uber, Lyft, or other tech firms, the Los Angeles Times reports.
  • Lexology provides a deep dive into the United States Court of Appeals for the Fifth Circuit, which clarified the level of “control” an employer can exercise over its independent contractors under the Fair Labor Standards Act (FLSA).
  • Forbes reports that independent workers in the UK are calling for the EU Executive to guarantee minimum income to self-employed people who work through digital platforms.

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!
