A just-released report from the Government Accountability Office (GAO) contains many points compatible with PIA National's position on issue of employee misclassification. The PIA Business Issues Committee recommended:

  2. more accurate reporting, while preserving the status of genuine independent contractors and workers' compensation exemption options;

  4. more effective enforcement.
