Freelance Isn't Free
Wednesday, April 25, 2018 | 6:00 p.m. - 8:00 p.m.

There is no fee for this event, please sign in to register.

Do you work freelance? Are you an independent contractor? Have you been refused a written contract because “the job is only for a few hundred dollars”? Has an employer unreasonably delayed payment, or worse, simply refused to pay for your work? Have you been unfairly blacklisted by an employer as a result of a dispute? Have you wondered how you can fight back against these occupational hazards? If so, Freelance Isn’t Free is an event you must attend.

Freelance Isn’t Free is a free community event held for freelancer workers to learn about their legal rights and protections, including the NYC Department of Consumer Affairs' new "Freelance Isn't Free Act." During the event, a panel of legal professionals and staff from the NYC Department of Consumer Affairs will discuss the finer points of the new law: what kind of rights does it afford freelancers, what kind of remedies freelancers have if these rights have been violated, and how do freelancers, or their attorneys, go about obtaining these remedies. At the conclusion of the panel discussion, participating freelancers will have the opportunity to mingle and network with other freelancers and members of the panel.
