On May 15, 2017, the New York City Freelance Isn’t Free Act quietly went into effect. While there are not yet any court decisions addressing the law, it has begun to turn up in lawsuits. The law poses additional considerations for employers who might look to independent contractors as a way to save money and limit liability.
