Is PRO Act a threat to independent contractor status for Realtors®?


The National Association of REALTORS® is cautioning members not to panic over passage of the Protecting the Right to Organize (PRO) Act in the U.S. House of Representatives, a bill that could have broad implications for the independent contractor status of millions of Americans. Several recent opinion pieces in industry publications have incorrectly depicted the bill as nearing imminent passage in the Senate and becoming law with unfavorable terms for REALTORS®.

“NAR’s advocacy team worked with lawmakers in the House to ensure REALTORS® would not be negatively impacted and to support an amendment that would protect existing state definitions of ‘employer’ and ‘employee.’ We are currently working to ensure this language is included in the Senate version,” says NAR Chief Advocacy Officer Shannon McGahn.
