IC Pro is a free service that allows JobSlinger and JobSlinger Plus members to establish their credentials as independent contractors. Recent legal pressures are requiring mystery shopping companies to provide additional proof that their thousands and thousands of mystery shoppers are independent contractors, not employees. These actions threaten our entire industry of mystery shopping and would result in fewer shops and lower shop fees across the board.
As a result, mystery shopping companies are currently favoring shoppers who add themselves to the IC Pro mystery shopper registry. IC Pro is a neutral third-party registry that enables shoppers to document their independent contractor status, thus helping mystery shopping companies avoid legal challenges. It's quick, free, secure and will greatly increase your chance of getting more shops in the future.
