The rise of the gig economy (bolstered by the COVID-19 pandemic) has led many to consider expanding America's current employee / independent contractor employment classification system. This "third way" — neither classifying workers as employees nor independent workers — would allow gig workers to receive some benefits, but not become full employees.
In part 3 of our gig economy series, Zachary Pyers and Kenton Steele will discuss the following questions:

  • Why is a third classification needed for gig workers?
  • Who is in support of this idea?
  • What impact would a third classification have on employment law and tort liability?
