BOSTON, Sept. 17, 2018 /PRNewswire/ -- Globalization Partners, a Global Expansion Platform renowned for its Global Employer of Record that helps companies quickly expand into more than 150 countries without the hassle of setting up overseas branch offices, recently published a report by Nancy Cremins, Chief Administrative Officer & General Counsel, about worker classification in the ever growing on-demand economy.
The on-demand economy, comprised of independent and frequently short-term temporary independent contractor arrangements, continues to face international scrutiny over whether subject individuals are being misclassified. Also known as the "gig economy," the method of engaging on-demand workers, as opposed to a standard employer-employee arrangement, is a common practice around the world as companies gig workers to drive their international expansion.
While on-demand work may initially seem like a mutually beneficial situation for both the worker and the employer, the courts, legislatures, and companies both in the United States and abroad are challenged with how to classify these workers and provide them with some access to benefits.
