The Gig Economy: The New American Dream or a Way to Exploit Workers
We've all seen headlines about companies being sued over their use of independent contractors: Uber, Lyft, Airbnb, FedEx, Dave's Killer Breads, Grubhub, Comcast, Pepperidge Farms. It is estimated that in just about three years, more Americans will be contingent workers - about 40 percent of the entire U.S. workforce. Please join our experts, Plaintiff-side employment attorney Stephen Danz and employment attorney, mediator and arbitrator Eve Wagner for a lively discussion about laws affecting workers classified as independent contractors in the Gig economy and other industries. This program will include a discussion of the employment and tax laws that regulate workers, the various tests utilized by the courts and governmental agencies in determining worker status, and the significant risks facing employers who misclassify their employees as independent contractors.


Stephen Danz, Esq. - Senior Partner of Stephen Danz & Associates, a 15-attorney firm that represents employees only; written extensively on employment law and presented at various NELA, CELA and CAOC seminars; over 40 jury trials.
