Rep. Kiley to Chair Hearing on Independent Contractors

Hearing will examine Biden’s war on independent contractors, and DOL nominee Julie Su’s role in destroying worker livelihoods

Who: Subcommittee Chair Kiley, Members of the Subcommittee on Workforce Protections

What: Chair Kiley will convene the Subcommittee on Workforce Protections for a hearing titled “Examining Biden’s War on Independent Contractors”

When: Wednesday, April 19th at 10:15 A.M.

Where: 2175 Rayburn House Office Building

Press: The meeting is open to press and will be livestreamed here.

“The last thing our economy needs right now is overreaching federal policies that discourage work and attack workers,” said Chair Kiley. “Yet DOL’s independent contractor rule and the PRO Act, like AB 5 in California, do just that – depriving millions of Americans of the opportunity to work independently and start their own business. The Biden administration is all in on these failed policies, even nominating the architect of the disastrous AB 5 law, Julie Su, to head the Department of Labor. Our committee will protect the freedom of American workers to earn a living as they choose and will fight every effort by Washington bureaucrats to take that right away.” – Chair Kevin Kiley

  • Ms. Karen Anderson, Founder of Freelancers Against AB5, Dana Point, California
  • Ms. Kim Kavin, Freelance Writer and Editor, Co-Founder of Fight for Freelancers, Morris County, New Jersey
