  • Federal Pro Act (H.R. 842) - Protecting the Right to Organize Act of 2014. Here is what we need to know:
    • It imposes the restrictive ABC test which assumes workers are employees unless all elements of the test of are met. We believe this test could result in the reclassification of financial advisors and financial planners as employees.
    • We want the legislation amended to either exclude financial advisors and financial planners or amended to narrow the ABC test so that it is not as sweeping.
    • Members of Congress need to hear from us to understand our concerns and fully understand the impact of including financial planners in changes to how independent contracts are classified.
