Eric Rumbaugh was a panelist in the session "Co-Employment Today: Myths and Realities" at the Staffing Industry Analysts Collaboration in the Gig Economy 2016 conference.
Myths abound when it comes to co-employment and what to do about it. It really doesn’t matter if your business is a gig economy company or one that has been around for decades. Or does it?
In this session you will find out why attorneys reiterate co-employment is a fact of life in the world of contingent work. And questions of whether you can invite contingent workers to company parties or the applicability of the Affordable Care Act are just the tip of the iceberg of issues to be addressed. In this session our legal experts will address the issues, bust the myths and share some realities when it comes to this thorny topic. We also explore special applications of the law relevant to co-employment in the old and new economies and markets around the world.
