Independent Contractor Status in 2009 & Beyond


Meeting Description:

With several anti-independent contractor bills pending in the current U.S. Congress and one of the Presidential nominees being the principal sponsor of one of those bills, companies that operate with independent contractors often inquire about the political landscape for independent-contractor viability during 2009 and beyond.  The most common response to that inquiry is that "it depends". 

It depends on the outcome of the November elections.  This webinar -- scheduled for after the November elections -- is focused on answering that question after knowing the outcome of the elections.  The presentation will also provide a broad overview of the current environment generally for independent contractors and cover related developments at the Executive Branch of government and how those developments might be affected by the new political leadership that is elected in November. 

Come hear post-election commentary on the status of independent contractors.
