Pending Federal Independent Contractor Law

Friday, April 25th, 2008

The “Independent Contractor Proper Classification Act of 2007” is the title of a bill that Presidential Candidate Senator Barack Obama introduced in September of last year.

If it becomes a Federal independent contractor law, it will amend the Revenue Act of 1978, by providing procedures for properly classifying workers as independent contractors or employees.

The pending new law will also provide a path for a worker to discover his or her legal status as an independent contractor or employee, while protected from employer retaliation.

If and when this this pending independent contractor law is enacted, Employee Rights Blog will let you know. Subscribe to receive notification.

Meanwhile, to follow the progress of the bill, refer to the Independent Contractor Proper Classification Act of 2007 (Bill S.2044) at the THOMAS legislative Web.
