Gig Law Returns in the Form of the Pro Act
If you never heard of California’s gig law that caused writers and freelancers to panic, you missed out on some great social commentary.
Here’s a link to help understand the legislation: https://www.thecentersquare.com/nationa ... 3880d.html
Long story short, the United States is hoping to pass a version of the Gig Law nationwide. If it passes, it might mean freelance writers can only publish so many articles a year before the company has to deem them an employee. I’m not too sure. All I know is this law caused writers in California to take to the streets with metaphorical flame and pitchfork when it first came up.
The goal of the law is to make sure companies don’t depend on part-time workers as full-time employees. The problem is a lot of freelancers like the independence.
Just thought I’d share this because I think it’s important for writers to know about it.
