Issue:

As expected, it looks like the fight over independent contractor (IC) status is moving to the Empire State. A bill (S. 6699A) was recently introduced in the New York State Senate that threatens the independent advisor model in the State. It looks a lot like California Assembly Bill 5, establishing the so-called "ABC test" to determine if a worker is an employee or an independent contractor, with no exemptions at the moment. It is critical that this legislation be amended to protect the independent advisor model that has existed in our industry for decades and provides opportunities for thousands of small business owners.

We suspect other industries are already at work trying to get exempted, so now is the time to act even though the legislature doesn't come back into session until January. If you live in New York, please take two minutes to tell your state Senator to amend this legislation and protect New York small businesses!
