This seminar provides a fast-paced look at the personal and commercial lines insurance issues that have been created in the gig economy and its new players; Uber, Touro, Hertz, Avis, Airbonb and VRBO. The insurance ramifications are discussed. Next, there will be an examination of the particulars with regard to both the personal auto policy form and homeowners form.
Rick addresses the issues connected to the gig economy from the perspective of an employer in a more traditional business model. Simply put, can gig workers be held to be employees, despite the efforts of employers to treat them as temporary workers and therefore independent contractors? This section examines some case law and also some employment law developments that may influence the question not only from the perspective of the commercial liability policy, but more particularly the workers compensation laws. Lastly, a hypothetical question is discussed about whether a restaurant, or an app such as Door Dash, can or should be held liable when a driver has an accident while delivering food The restaurant's needs, driver needs and underlying liability issues are discussed.
