    Event Synopsis:
    The ongoing COVID-19 crisis is highlighting the lack of benefits for gig workers who are now at the forefront of keeping the economy moving. Recognizing the freelancers’ significant role in the face of pandemic, governments, including the US, are now intensifying their efforts to protect gig workers particularly in terms of their classification. Recently, California has enacted Assembly Bill 5 (AB5) which classifies workers as employees unless they “perform work that is outside the usual course of the hiring entity’s business.”

    As the pandemic continues, further adjustments to the gig economy regulations are expected. Employers need to be on top of every development to ensure compliance.

    In this LIVE Webcast, employment attorney Josh C. Harrison (Ogletree Deakins) and senior economist Cary Elliott (Resolution Economics Group, LLC) will provide an in-depth discussion of the recent enforcement trends and regulatory updates in gig workers’ classification. Speakers will also present the crucial compliance issues which businesses face amidst the COVID-19 pandemic and will offer the best practices to navigate them.

    Some of the major topics that will be covered in this course are:

    • Gig-Worker Classification – Regulators vs Companies
    • COVID-19 Implications on the Gig-Economy
    • Recent Regulatory Developments
    • Critical Issues and Challenges
    • Best Practices
