IEEE-USA Free Livestream Event

The U.S. Department of Labor has released new rules for defining consultants.  While not as damaging as many expected, the new rules could still impact independent contractors in the technology space.  Join IEEE-USA's Director of Government Relations and Acting Managing Director Russell Harrison for a discussion of the new rules, how they will affect IEEE members, and how Congress views this issue.
