Safeguarding Start-Ups

Protect Flexible Work Arrangements 

States should make it easier to find flexible work by ensuring self-employed workers don’t get misclassified as employees of their clients.  

Protect Home-Based Work

States should prohibit local governments from treating home-based businesses differently than other businesses and placing extra burdens on businesses merely because they operate out of a home. 

Fast-Track Business Permits 

States should establish minimum timeframes for local governments to process business permits and reduce red tape by approving permits when local governments fail to meet deadlines.
