Podcast: Introduction to the gig economy

The "gig economy" has received considerable media attention recently, with a number of public protests taking place by gig economy contractors and several high-profile employment tribunal claims under way.

In this week's podcast, we consider the employment law issues raised in these cases. We also discuss the risks faced by organisations that hire freelancers through web applications.

In addition to listening to the audio, you can download the podcast transcript.

Presenter Bar Huberman is joined by Qian Mou. Edited and produced by Claire Scullin.
