Recent Developments in the Growing Gig Economy

Join us for the seventh program in our series, The Future of Human Resources: Cutting Edge Issues for Every Employer, as we discuss recent legal and regulatory developments that promise to have a profound impact on the growing Gig Economy. These developments include:

  • The U.S. National Labor Relations Board and Department of Labor’s publishing guidances on whether gig workers qualify as independent contractors or employees

  • Courts in states like California tackling the issue of classification under new and evolving legal tests sometimes in conflict with federal authorities

  • Congress and state legislatures taking measures to resolve issues unique to the Gig Economy, such as the lack of benefits and job security gig workers may face

  • Federal and state discrimination claims brought by gig workers, forcing courts to determine whether and how anti-discrimination protections apply
