NASE Voices Concern on "BE HEARD in the Workplace Act"

NASE joined the The Coalition to Promote Independent Entrepreneurs to express concern with the provisions contained in section 301 of the Bringing an End to Harassment by Enhancing Accountability and Rejecting Discrimination in the Workplace Act or the BE HEARD in the Workplace Act, S. 3219 and H.R. 5994, that would expand the protections offered to an employee under specified federal nondiscrimination laws “in the same manner and to the same extent” to an independent contractor.

In short, NASE is concerned that the legislation would eliminate the "legal recognition accorded independent-contractor status for purposes of the enumerated federal nondiscrimination laws. It would accomplish this by treating individuals who offer their services as independent contractors the same as if they were employees."
