Federal Court Affirms Rights of Independent Contractors

A federal court in Massachusetts recently ruled in favor of independent contractors – and the businesses that hire them – in an important case that will benefit consumers and the overall economy.

In this closely watched case, the Massachusetts Delivery Association (MDA) argued for their right – and the right of other companies that provide same-day delivery service – to contract with independent contractors to meet customer demand. This ruling, according to the MDA, upholds federal law that denies states from effectively banning the use of independent contractors in the same-day delivery market.

Our on-demand society relies on speedy, efficient delivery of goods and services, and small businesses and independent contractors play a big role in supporting our economy and making sure that the job gets done.

We at It’s My Business are glad to see that the federal court has affirmed the role of independent contractors in this case – but we know we have more work to do to reduce the unnecessary rules and regulations that are hindering the work of ICs around the country.
