New NLRB Decision: Independent Contractor Classification
Entrepreneurial Activity, Common Law Factors, Interaction With Federal, State and Local Laws
Recording of a 90-minute CLE webinar with Q&A
This CLE course will guide employment counsel following the National Labor Relations Board's (NLRB) recent decision in SuperShuttle, providing a new test on how to classify independent contractors. The panel will discuss how to navigate the thorny issue of worker classification while parsing through the various tests applied by different agencies (NLRB, DOL, etc.), in addition to a patchwork of state law on the subject.
- Overview of NLRB's 2019 SuperShuttle decision
- Impact of current "entrepreneurial activity" test on common law factors
- Interaction of NLRB's ruling with other federal, state and local laws regarding independent contractors
- Best practices for employers in drafting and maintaining independent contractors in light of new decision
The panel will review these and other relevant topics:
- What was the NLRB's decision in SuperShuttle?
- How does the SuperShuttle ruling depart from the NLRB's prior decision in FedEx Home Delivery?
- How does the NLRB's new decision interact with other federal, state and local laws governing independent contractors?
- What are best practices for employers in maintaining independent contractor relationships in light of this new ruling?
