Subject: Changes to regulation regarding employee vs Contractor determination

Please allow our elected representatives to determine if regulations should be changed. By


differentiating classification based whether a worker was hired via an online platform or through
an in person interview, it becomes a slippery slope to classifying all employees hired through job
sites, like Monster, Indeed, Glassdoor etc, as independent contractors. It is certainly not the time
to be shifting more risk to the worker. We have grown strong because of our worker protections
not in spite of them.

I would hope that in times like these when many companies want to do business in Texas, that
we should be improving our worker protections, not relaxing them.

Thank you for your consideration.
