Independent work has become an indispensable part of the nation’s economy. While we do not anticipate immediate impacts, the DoL’s new guidance could generate significant uncertainty for millions of small business owners and entrepreneurs. That’s why we will seek to ensure implementation of this rule does not target workers who overwhelmingly turn to app-based platforms to earn supplemental income on their own terms. We will continue to work with forward-thinking leaders to develop policies that reflect the 21st-century economic landscape and support all who embrace app-based services to earn, meet essential community needs, and support economic growth.
