Subject: Workforce 38 Program Policy - Proposed Changes to §815.134. Employment
Status: Employee or Independent Contractor

I am against proposed changes to classify workers as independent contractors based upon

exclusive hiring via digital networks. Today the usage of digital networks is so prevalent for so
many companies that its exclusive usage is a poor indicator to help determine employee status.
This change could be easily abused by companies to avoid employment obligations to Texas

Thank you
