I wrote this op-ed published today by The Washington Post, trying to alert everyone who works as an independent contractor, or whose business hires independent contractors, that what’s going on right now in New Jersey is going to affect employment law for all Americans going forward—for many years to come.
Please, give it a read and share widely. The upshot:
“The independent contractor laws now being written in a handful of states are setting precedents for how the language is going to be written across the country. If we screw this up in New Jersey now, then millions of Americans stand to be screwed over later.”
