As Freelancers' Ranks Grow, New York Moves to See They Get What They're Due
from The New York Times
The New York City Council voted unanimously to give freelance workers a set of protections against wage theft that are believed to be the first of their kind in the country. Known as the Freelance Isn’t Free Act, the measure requires anyone hiring a freelance worker to agree in writing to a timetable and procedure for payment, and increases the potential awards to freelancers bringing legal complaints against those who have failed to pay them promptly.
