NTI’s Leah Shaver and attorney Doug Grawe of The Grawe Group simplify the noise around navigating this new legal landscape for motor carriers and owner-operators on Taking the Hire Road. On the docket: Best practices for fleets to manage independent contractor relationships across all fleet departments, from recruiting and HR to operations and accounting, as well as an update on the ongoing court fight against A.B. 5 (it’s not settled yet), whether other states could take up similar legislation, Grawe’s advice on the “two-check” system, and how to communicate with drivers to ward off lawsuits.
