   Freelance workers are an essential part of today’s economy and one of the fastest growing sectors of the workforce. However, freelance workers, who are not employees but independent contractors, typically do not receive the same protections as employees, including protections against wage theft. Freelance workers face challenges with payment for their services, including delayed payment, less than full payment, and non-payment. The City has an interest in ensuring that freelance workers are treated fairly and receive the compensation they are due.
