the 2021 Independent Contractor Rule

Preserving Trucker's Freedom

Our independent truck drivers should have the freedom to decide which worker model they prefer- not the government. TIE is working hard to preserve this right, along with reducing the inflationary effect of the trucker/driver shortage. You can help- one click can make the difference.

Owner operators make up a large portion of our nation's trucking industry. However, their business model is under threat by the Reclassification of Independent Contractors legislation, which not only stands to negatively impact thousands of lives, but also the US economy as a whole.

"I learned at a young age that being an owner operator gave me the opportunity to get rewarded with hard work vs an hourly paycheck. The harder I work the more I can provide for my family. As an owner operator I am able to choose which jobs I want to complete."

The risk

The White House

In 2019, national labor unions rallied in California with a successful legislative campaign that radically changed 30 years of state law to reclassify millions of workers as employees. The success of AB5, which restricts businesses from classifying workers as independent contractors rather than employees, has propelled unions to leverage the Biden Administration to push for a national policy that would limit how independent contractors operate at a federal level.
