Over the last decade companies like Airbnb, Uber, Etsy and others have ushered in the gig economy.  Today, the world’s top gig economy companies span a wide range of business sector – from therapeutics to pet care – and they provide billions of dollars to the U.S. and states economies.

Independent Contractor… or Employee?

Our new “Gig Economy” has muddied the waters when it comes to classifying workers. Melody A. Kramer has been tracking these developments from California to New York – and even the federal government’s Pro Act.

In this CLE, she will provide both legal and practical guidance for businesses as laws change and increasingly more workers are now considered employees. Melody will mainly highlight the rational for classifying workers as employees, analyze the various tests used to determine worker status and provide practical advice for businesses to navigate through this  minefield.
