We wanted to bring to your attention New Jersey SB 4204, which if passed, would cause changes to how process service companies can use independent contractors in the state. A similar bill was recently passed in California.
Many process service companies utilize independent contractors to fulfill service requests. This bill changes how independent contractors are classified and as it’s currently written would require those individuals to either become employees or to establish their own insured LLCs. Either option would require some restructuring and planning.
We will be discussing this bill at the upcoming meeting this Saturday. If you would like to attend you can register here: http://bit.ly/35k5oUc
This has not yet passed, so there is no need to take action yet to plan for alternatives. We’ll keep you posted as we get more information in regard to the bill and its status.
