During these uncertain times, employers have been struggling to adapt to COVID-19. Many creative workers have had to move their offices to their homes, have had their hours reduced, their jobs furloughed, or lost their jobs entirely. For others deemed essential workers, going into the workplace might feel risky. Are employers looking out for you, and what should you do if your position has changed in the last few weeks?
Tim Hwang of Rosen, Wolfe and Hwang leads this special workshop addressing freelancer rights in the COVID-19 era. As the economic impacts of coronavirus continue to ripple through the economy, freelancers are some of those most impacted as businesses seek to avoid paying or otherwise following through on their contracts. This session reviews some of the common contract clauses that we're seeing businesses use as they try to do this, and what freelancers can do to assert their legal rights.
