The Changing Landscape of the Gig Workforce: Key Trends and Legal Issues Explored!
As technology and the Gig economy continue to greatly influence the workforce, business structures and employment processes are being modified by companies to be able to adapt to these arising developments and, therefore, avoid potential risks. It was in 1995 when the U.S. Bureau of Labor Statistics (BLS) first published the Contingent Work Survey (CWS) which analyzed contingent work and alternative employment arrangements before the term “gig economy” was popularized.
In this LIVE Webcast, a panel of thought leaders and professionals assembled by The Knowledge Group will provide the audience with an in-depth discussion of the changing landscape of the Gig Workforce. Speakers will also give highlights to the key trends and legal issues of this significant topic.
Key topics include:
- The Impacts of the Gig Economy to the Employment Workforce
- Arising Innovations and Technologies in the Gig Workforce
- Cost and Risk Reduction Strategies
- Opportunities and Pitfalls of the Gig Workforce
- Managed Service Provider (MSP) vs. Contractor Management Outsourcing (CMO)
