NYC Freelance Law Affects Religious Institutions
A new law took effect today in New York City. Designed to protect freelance workers, the Freelance Isn’t Free Act “establishes and enhances protections for freelance workers, specifically the right to: a written contract, timely and full payment, and protection from retaliation.” The statute’s full text is found here. Religious institutions that employ freelancers should be aware of the law’s requirements. Non-employee ministers may be covered by this Act.
