Massachusetts Appeals Court Clarifies the A’s and C’s of Independent Contractor Status

On July 13, 2022, the Massachusetts Appeals Court signaled a victory for Massachusetts employers who rely upon independent contractors. In Tiger Home Inspection, Inc. v. Dir. of the Dep’t of Unemployment, the Appeals Court reversed decisions from the Department of Unemployment (“DUA”) and trial court, concluding that the inspectors were independent contractors under Massachusetts’s Unemployment Insurance statute (“Unemployment Law”) and, thus, ineligible for unemployment benefits. Focusing on Prongs A and C of the Unemployment Law’s “ABC” test for classifying independent contractors, the Appeals Court provided employers with excellent precedent and concrete guidance for navigating those elements of the test. Notably, the Unemployment Law’s ABC language largely tracks the Massachusetts Wage Act’s “ABC” test, with Prongs A and C using identical language. As a result, Tiger Home Inspection arguably provides employers with much-needed clarity for navigating both statutes.

URI economist: Economic activity picks up pace

WHAT: The pace of economic activity in Rhode Island continued to improve in July along with showing hints of an accelerated pace says noted University of Rhode Island economist Leonard Lardaro. According to Lardaro, Rhode Island’s Current Conditions Index for July improved to an expansion value of 75 – up from 67, where it had been for the past several months. Several key indicators showed substantial sustained or rising strength – among them Retail Sales, Total Manufacturing Hours, Benefits Exhaustion and New Claims (for Unemployment Insurance). Most noteworthy, he noted, was an improvement in Employment Service Jobs – a leading labor market indicator that includes temporary workers – after six consecutive months of (annual) declines. The biggest risk ahead, says Lardaro, is the extent to which the interest-sensitive parts of our economy, such as Retail Sales and Single Unit Permits, slow due to monetary tightening in the coming months.
