  • Description

    A first-of-its-kind statute dedicated to the protection of W-2 employees, the New York City’s Freelance Isn’t Free Act went above and beyond in protecting freelance workers from late and non-payment. With powerful civil remedies in place such as negative presumption against hiring parties, double damages, and attorney fees, to name a few, NYC is leading the way in freelance worker protection and other states are following.

    This CLE course will provide commercial litigators with everything they need to know to use this statute to their advantage.
