SCI Helps Clients Thrive in the New Gig Economy
According to Gallup, more than one-third or about 57 million U.S. workers participate in the gig economy, either through their primary or secondary jobs. In 2020, SCI made it our goal to solve our clients’ issues with recruiting and retention in a climate that is making it harder and harder to operate by putting those who have delivery work with those that want delivery work in communication with each other. On Jan. 1, 2020, a new California law, AB5, went into effect to determine whether California workers are employees or independent contractors (ICs). AB5 makes it more difficult for sole proprietors with single clients to operate as independent contractors to support sole proprietors dealing with AB5, SCI’s partnership with Drivv, powered by Courierboard, an industry-leading load board where fully vetted independent contractors can find additional delivery work. SCI is also not only working to make it easier for logistics brokers and owner operators to connect, it is also leveraging the expertise of SCI’s in-house legal department to provide the most current industry-relevant information and suggestions for best practices to ensure a solid independent contractor relationship
