Staffing and Independent Workforce

Businesses in virtually every sector of the economy must be forward-thinking and creative in identifying—and implementing—talent management solutions while simultaneously managing the risks inherent in employing freelance and other contingent workers.

Staffing and Independent Workforce

Overview

Technological advances continue to present limitless opportunities for “gig” workers and businesses alike. Employers now face unique compliance challenges in determining how to optimally manage legal issues for non-traditional workers, including wage and hour, tax, benefits, privacy, and labor.  In this highly-competitive environment, businesses must be savvy to structure working relationships to attract sought-after talent and avoid regulatory pitfalls and costly litigation. 

Our clients include consumers and providers of freelance and project-based workers, and temporary staffing and professional employer organizations. We provide targeted legal advice based on our deep understanding of unique industry issues.  As part of our mission to provide the most up-to-date legal and business guidance, we are actively involved in key industry groups such as the National Association of Professional Employer Organizations (NAPEO), American Staffing Association (ASA), National Independent Staffing Association, as well as various state and local industry staffing associations.
