Do You Use Independent Owner Operators?

If so, then you NEED to come to this event 

Those who currently use independent owner operators BEWARE. Several recent court decisions and rule changes have now put utilizing independent owner-operators in New Jersey a very risky business decision.

This forum will focus on how to survive the state’s efforts to eliminate the independent contractor business model. Recent rule changes and court decisions have now put the use of independent owner operators for all practicable purposes no longer an option.

Join us for a fact filled forum from experts on the evolving independent owner-operator business model. This is a must attend event for anyone who utilizes independent owner operators.

“People who think they can remain “off-the radar” are fooling themselves …. We have about as close to zero hope that we can actually get positive legislation to turn the assault around we need to re-imagine the independent contractor business model”.

Joe Rajkovacz, Director of Governmental Affairs & Communications, Western States Trucking Association
