The AH Workplace Webinar Series #3: H&S Governance in a Gig Economy

Kathryn McKinney and Anne Wilson, from our Employment Law team with Grant  Nicholson, and Olivia Welsh from our Health and Safety team, discuss the basics of Health and Safety governance in a gig economy, where you are dealing with a diverse range of employees outside of normal employment contracts.

The key takeaways of this webinar are:

  1. It’s important for employers to regularly review the employment/contractor status of gig workers and get it right so that they comply with minimum entitlements;
  2. Health and safety obligations apply regardless of the gig worker’s employment status;
  3. Enployers need to consider how they can best meet the particular health and safety obligations that arise in relation to gig workers in light of the way that their business operates.
