In legal news:

The National Employment Law Project (NELP) published a position statement promoting workers’ comp for on-demand workers. NELP writes: “On-demand businesses often label their workers ‘independent contractors,’ saying they are in business for themselves. In many cases, this label is wrong and illegal […] State legislatures can take action to prevent and correct misclassification and reduce litigation over employee status. State legislatures should explicitly clarify that on-demand companies are obligated to provide workers’ compensation to their workers by either specifically naming them as ‘employers’ for the purposes of workers’ compensation coverage, and/or naming the workers in certain jobs as covered ‘employees.’”
