With little publicity, last week New Jersey State Senate President Steve Sweeney introduced legislation (S4204) to implement a rigid version of the so-called "ABC test" to determine if a worker is an employee or an independent contractor (IC), similar to California AB 5. The New Jersey legislature is in a "lame duck" session through the end of the year and could take final votes on this bill in the next few weeks. It is critical that we convince legislators to amend the bill to protect the IC model in our industry, as we successfully did in California and will have to do in neighboring New York next year. If you live in New Jersey, please take two minutes out of your day to contact your state senator through our grassroots portal below.
