31 Organizations Sign Coalition Letter Supporting the Modern Worker Empowerment Act

The Coalition to Promote Independent Entrepreneurs submitted a letter signed by thirty-one organizations expressing support for the Modern Worker Empowerment Act, H.R. 4069.

H.R. 4069 would bring the Fair Labor Standards Act (“FLSA”) into the 21st century by updating the definition of “employee,” conforming the definition of “employee” with other New Deal era statutes that already apply a “common-law” definition for the term, and reconciling the FLSA with more recent U.S. Supreme Court decisions.

The Coalition is very much appreciate of Representatives Elise Stefanik (R-NY), Bradley Byrne (R-AL), Phil Roe (R-TN) and Ron Wright’s (R-TX) leadership in modernizing the FLSA and liberating our nation’s independent entrepreneurs.
