Topic: News you NEED if your company uses owner-operators!


Does your company use owner-operators? Are you ready for the next attack on the independent contractor model? In states like California and New Jersey, the use of independent contract/owner-operator drivers is under attack. President-Elect Biden has indicated his plans to further examine the use of independent contractors across all industries. Motor carriers and private fleets are easy targets for audits and lawsuits challenging whether an owner-operator is an employee, potentially subjecting you to unemployment insurance, workers compensation, and various other damages. This seminar will discuss the regulations and give you practical pointers for effectively contracting and interacting with owner-operators in your daily operations to help avoid potential problems.

COST: $25 per person

Presenters:  Bert Randall & Renee Bowen, Franklin & Prokopik
