Wayne This week we are going to go coast to coast with good news and bad news - from Washington, DC to Washington State.

 
From Washington, DC, we have a new guest writer about news that DOT implemented new rules reducing paperwork filings for truck drivers that should save about 46.7 million of hours of time.

From the State of Washington comes more bad news. This state has now joined the bandwagon on misclassification. They have introduced a new definition for the term of "Independent Contractor."

For those of who have been hiding under a rock this past year, we want to reiterate the fact that the Independent Contractor Model is still under attack especially since the NLRB's intervention in October 2014.  

Remember, you may not be able to succeed on your own without help. If you are thinking about joining an association for help, you need the best.

NTA is the "Rolls Royce" of transportation associations.  Just Google, "Pardon me, is that a Rolls Royce."

Join the NTA and don't wait until it's too late.

With thousands of criminal courts across the country it can be difficult to locate and confirm information. It is critical for motor carriers and private fleet employers to understand the availability and limitations of criminal history data, and to make sure they are working with a partner who knows how and where to get the right information quickly and accurately.
