    Richard Reibstein, a Partner in Locke Lord’s Labor and Employment Practice in New York and Co-Chair of the Firm’s Independent Contractor Misclassification and Compliance Practice, was quoted in a Business Insurance article examining the U.S. Supreme Court ruling that independent contractor truck drivers are exempt from arbitration under the Federal Arbitration Act.
