Richard Bell recently spoke at the TEANA conference in New Orleans. Here is a link to the White Paper he handed out: "The Five Evil Sisters: An Attack on Independent Contractors"
The following is what TEANA said about the topic:
"Transportation accountant Richard Bell pointed out threats facing the independent contractor model many TEANA members utilize. Bell contends business owners do a better job of allocating and managing resources than government, as local, state and federal authorities seek revenue during times when tax coffers are thinning. Bell encourages TEANA members aggregate against government controlling independent contractor law and for members to work towards changing state workers compensation laws to make them statutory. Bell advises all members to understand the definition of "employee" in each state they provide services, for workers compensation purposes."
