WASHINGTON, DC – Kristin Sharp, CEO of Flex Association, released the following statement today on the proposed rule announced by the Department of Labor:
"Millions of app-based workers choose this work because of the flexibility it provides. They overwhelmingly prefer to preserve their ability to choose when, where, and how often they work. During this process, we will ensure that the Department of Labor continues hearing the voices of these earners, and will work to ensure that any final rule protects the independence they need."
