Independent Contractor Legislation Expected to Increase Due to On-Demand Economy

Most state legislatures have only been in session for a few weeks, but already PJC Publishing’s Legislative Tracking PLUS has identified several important bills concerning the independent-contractor status of individuals who work in the on-demand/sharing economy. These bills continue the trend that began last year when six bills affecting these individuals were introduced in state legislatures, and three were enacted.

The on-demand/sharing economy appears to have fueled heightened interest in the independent-contractor issue overall, as sixty independent-contractor-related bills were introduced in state legislatures during 2015, and eleven were enacted.

The 2016 legislative sessions for states are already picking up speed and independent-contractor status appears to remain a hot issue in state legislatures. Any company that does business with independent contractors could be affected by new legislation enacted this year.

Last year PJC created its new product – Legislative Tracking PLUS – to assist those on all sides of the issue who follow independent-contractor-related bills at the state level by offering a reliable resource that provides timely and objective bill-tracking information on a cost-effective basis. Recognizing the inefficiency of each person separately monitoring these bills and tracking their progress, Legislative Tracking PLUS does this once – for the benefit of everyone.

“We created Legislative Tracking PLUS to bring economies of scale to the legislative tracking process for bills affecting companies that do business with independent contractors” says Patrick Hollrah, the service’s editor. He explained that “by leveraging a large subscriber base we can offer an annual subscription to Legislative Tracking PLUS for only $500.” Subscribers receive bi-weekly reports with bill tracking updates, augmented by bill summaries written by attorneys who practice in this area – and who understand the significance and subtleties of these bills. At this price, it is difficult imagine why anyone with an interest in independent-contractor-related legislation would continue to track these state bills on their own anymore!
