“Women are losing a crucial right thanks to unnecessary Washington interference: the right to work independently. Recently, the Department of Labor (DOL) finalized new regulations to determine the status of independent contractors which strikes at the heart of self-employment and flexibility, something valued most by women. Under the new DOL rule, self-employed workers and the businesses that hire them must now navigate a confusing six-factor economic reality test to determine their classification as either an employee or an independent contractor under the Fair Labor Standards Act. Previously, the more independent contractor-friendly rule established during the Trump administration focused on just two core factors: the level of control over work, such as setting schedules; and the opportunity for profit or loss.” (02/04/24)
