January 9

On Tuesday, January 9th, the Department of Labor announced a rule about the definition of
“independent contractor.” There are now six different factors used for analysis to regulate the
distinction between an employee and an independent contractor. This new layered reasoning
overwhelmingly harms working men and women who rely on independent opportunities. With this new
rule in place, the Biden administration discourages the entrepreneurial drive of Americans, especially
that of moms seeking flexibility in their work.
