Blog Bite: Why should you execute your agreement in writing if you are hiring, or have already hired, a freelance worker in NYC?

May 25, 2017

This article posted on our partner site discusses the new “Freelance Isn’t Free” Act in effect in New York City, and the new requirements it establishes for all hiring parties, whether a corporation or an individual, who engage services from freelance workers. The author brings readers’ attention to the fact that the new law provides freelancers the right to file a civil lawsuit for statutory damages of $250 for the hiring party’s mere failure to execute a written agreement. To avoid having to pay these damages, hiring parties should simply apply good business practice and have their agreements comprehensively set out in writing.
