Session 1: Contingent Workers and Joint Employment - Claims brought by contingent workers often involve disputes about whether or not a worker is an "employee" and who is that worker's "employer." Survey the different standards for determining employment status under various labor and employment laws with a focus on nonstandard work arrangements, including contract, temporary, and "gig" work.
Session 2: The Gig Economy: Don’t Call It a Comeback - Revisit the rapidly evolving gig economy and take a tour through the myriad approaches courts and agencies have adopted, tested, and abandoned in their collective attempt to understand and classify the growing number of digital platform providers that now enable service providers to connect directly with end-users. Examine the limitations of the binary employee/contractor classification system, the promises and pitfalls of a proposed hybrid “gig” worker classification, and the competing federal, state, and local efforts to find the right balance between entrepreneurial enablement and service provider protection.
