Today, ACI submitted comments regarding the Department of Labor’s proposed withdrawal of the Independent Contractor Status under the Fair Labor Standards Act. In our filing, we discuss the detrimental effects of the proposed withdrawal of the prior ruling and its potential impact on 59 million Americans who work as independent contractors. As Americans look for additional income during these trying times, we are concerned that this proposed withdrawal ignores an evolution in the labor market and the strong preferences of independent workers.
