Independent contractor status in question: What’s happening with ‘misclassification’ efforts nationwide
Trucking and labor nationwide are engaged in a debate over what determines independent contractor status, as lawmakers and courts consider whether owner-operators should be classified as employees.
A nationwide survey has ranked Illinois, Oregon and the District of Columbia the best and South Dakota the worst in adoption of highway safety laws.
In a bill supported by both the New York Motor Carrier Association and the Teamsters, the state is changing misclassification rules to bolster legit contractors and punish misclassification violators.
The Owner-Operator Independent Drivers Association is legally challenging New York’s mandate that out-of-state trucks pay registration fees to operate on state highways.
New Jersey Gov. Chris Christie has used his strongest veto power against legislation that would have barred owner-operators from the drayage and parcel delivery service.
North Carolina Gov. Pat McCrory has signed the second of two bills that limit the state’s ability to toll existing lanes.
A new Connecticut law dealing with independent contractor status is being embraced by owner-operator advocates.
