The use of independent contractors has been foundational to the stability and success of the intermodal industry. However, the model remains under attack from private litigants, certain state governments, and now the federal government.

This webinar will provide you with the latest legal developments on these important fronts in order to help you successfully manage your workforce and maintain your relationships with independent contractors.
