The transportation industry successfully operates many of its functions with robust independent contractor programs. However, the legal environment to do so is tight with regulators, unions and competitors always watching what you do.  Where it’s legally permitted, Lommen Abdo can help you establish and operate an independent contractor program which satisfies statutory requirements and the needs of your contractors.  Of course, the transportation industry relies extensively on well-educated and highly-trained employee workforce.  Such employees, however, require well advised management to address hiring, termination, discipline, compensation, benefits, employee protection, whistleblower, and performance incentives among many other things.  Our attorneys are experienced in all areas of employment law and management consulting to guide your business to make the most effective use of your valuable human resources.
