Manage episode 247437755 series 87928
As we continue to shift further into gig economy employment, defining employee-employer relationships is increasingly challenging in the area of workers’ compensation. Workers’ Comp Matters host Alan Pierce talks with Roger Finderson about what the term “gig economy” really means and how to draw the distinction between employees and independent contractors. They explain the use of factors tests, the need for adaptations in workers’ comp law, and how the advent of “Handy” legislation is creating problems for injured workers.
Roger Finderson is managing attorney at Finderson Law LLC in Fort Wayne, Indiana.
