A Closer Look at What’s Changed

The recent changes in labor laws have brought several critical elements to the forefront of gig economy employment:

  • Strengthened Job Security: These rules are designed to offer gig workers a level of job security similar to that enjoyed by traditional employees, including more defined contract terms and predictable working hours.
  • Access to Benefits: Gig workers now have access to certain benefits traditionally reserved for full-time employees, such as health coverage and retirement plans.
