The gig economy - a term you may have heard a time or two in the past few years - is defined as an environment in which temporary positions are common and organizations contract with independent workers for short-term engagements. The gig economy has become popular through companies like Uber and Lyft, but as these companies grow so do the issues with labor law regulations. In this episode we are joined by Professor Miriam Cherry. Professor Cherry is currently the director of the Wefel Center for Employment Law and is an expert in the gig economy.
