TGC Lawyer Fred Wynne was quoted in an article on the Province’s response to COVID-19 that appeared in the October 22 edition of The Lawyer’s Weekly.
In the article Fred talks about the challenges that workers are facing in the current economy. Fred is quoted as saying:
“The legal definition of who is and who isn’t a contractor is getting pretty blurry, especially in terms of gig work, and I think a lot of employers in that sector are taking advantage of that fact…Incorporating clear criteria on that is a constant battle we face in a number of areas, so there is lots of room for improvement.”
