Non-standard forms of employment
Multijurisdictional assistance to find a 'third way' in employment.
The gig economy attracts a growing level of attention from governments and courts, centred on platforms’ relationship with workers in particular. The trend towards individuals taking up alternative types of work is driving new forms of arrangements (whether contractual or informal) and leading to growing challenges.
This trend, which is present across all industries and not just valid for platforms, will continue, and organisations must consider how they structure, manage and incentivise their workforce and how those decisions could affect their exposure to employment-related disputes.
We assist global businesses on these issues, defending classification claims wherever and whenever they arise and also advising on the overall strategy for best structuring relationship with their workforce.
