[Webinar] Demystifying Legislation: Preparing for the PRO Act - June 16th, 10:00 am MST

June 16th, 2021
10:00 AM MST

In recent months, Congress has re-introduced the Professional Right to Organize Act, more commonly known as the PRO Act. Initially passed by Congress in 2020, the PRO Act was stalled in the Republican-controlled Senate. Now, with a slim margin in the Senate and support from President Joe Biden, there’s an opportunity for Democrats to pass sweeping labor reforms that will transform the transportation and logistics industries nationwide.

Join Openforce CEO Wendy Greenland and Doug Grawe of The Grawe Group, along with Midfield Consulting’s Mike Joyce, as they discuss the many nuances of the PRO Act and the best practices your contracting business can follow in preparation for what’s to come.

What you'll learn:

  • The PRO Act's misclassification triggers and critical risk areas
  • The potential ramifications on contractor and owner-operator workforces
  • Best practices for safeguarding your business model against misclassification
