NAIFA’S O’GARA TELLS THE SBA IT’S IMPORTANT FOR ADVISORS TO REMAIN INDEPENDENT CONTRACTORS
November 21, 2022 by NAIFA
Josh O’Gara, CLU, ChFC, CFP, loyal member since 2011, spoke on behalf of NAIFA during a virtual roundtable discussion on Department of Labor’s proposed rule on Independent Contractor Classification Under the Fair Labor Standards Act. The event was held by the U.S. Small Business Administration’s Office of Advocacy to gather input from people and businesses potentially affected by the proposed rule. NAIFA strongly supports an exemption for insurance and financial professionals under any legislation or DOL regulation that would reclassify independent contractors as employees.
