Freelance Isn’t Free Law In New York
The Entertainment, Arts and Sports Law Section (EASL) presents "Freelance Isn’t Free Law in New York"
Many people working in the Entertainment Industry in New York do so as a freelancer / independent contractor. Effective in 2017, the New York City Freelance Isn’t Free Act (FIFA) established protections for freelance workers including the right to a written contract, timely and full payment, and protection from retaliation. Recently legislation has been proposed in the New York State Assembly for a similar statewide law [2021/A9368]. This programl will discuss the success of FIFA, possible impediments to a claim, the likelihood of recovery, and the efforts to enact protections for freelancers throughout New York State.
