New York gig workers turn to grassroots employment strategies

Published August 3, 2021


A Bloomberg Law story quoted Erin Hatton about how New York gig workers have turned to grassroots employment strategies. The inability to unionize and forge collective bargaining agreements under federal law is a defining element of gig workers’ independent contractor status. “But that might not stop them” from attempting to do so, Hatton said. “The bigger issue is one of logistics: They are technically self-employed, so who’s the boss?”
