what have we done for you this week?

This week, the Ohio Trucking Association encourages you to register for our June 26 webinar on the new independent contractor definition in the state of Ohio. During the Ohio Transportation Budget creation, the state of Ohio passed new language on defining independent contractors in the transportation industry. This change established a seven-factor test that supersedes the common law test most often used by government agencies. Ohio is the newest edition to the growing list of over 30 states with transportation specific definitions. This Ohio law references independent contractor determinations for unemployment insurance, workers compensation, and wage and hour. Our June 26 webinar will discuss the seven-factor test adopted in Ohio and how to set up your independent contractor model to comply with the new regulations based on the best understanding of how Ohio will implement these changes. Join us on June 26 at noon for this informational webinar. Register here.
