By Tim Stroud

By leveraging these individuals, companies create an "on-demand" workforce that scales up or down as business needs dictate. At the same time, free agents benefit from having greater independence and flexibility. Engaging small businesses, including the "business of one," is a great strategy but does pose unique challenges and often requires change management for a company to achieve and remain compliant with very dynamic regulatory enforcement agencies and the aggressively litigious environment.

Robin Valentine has worked for more than 20 years in the manufacturing industry for different companies in the Southern Tier.

EUC benefits are 7.2 percent less than initial benefits and can be claimed for up to 53 weeks.
