The Deceptive Allure of a New Third Status of Worker

On May 10, 2016, the Coalition published a White Paper titled, The Deceptive Allure of a New Third Status of Worker.

The paper discusses concerns with the idea of creating a new third worker status that some have proposed as a reaction to the perceived inadequacy of current law spurred by the rapid success of companies operating in the “sharing economy” or “gig economy.”

Instead, the paper offers an alternative solution, namely harmonizing the general tests governing the determination of worker status.
