The City Council just passed the Freelance Isn't Free Act to protect freelancers from wage theft. Brad Lander, city councilman from Brooklyn, and Sara Horowitz, founder and executive director of Freelancers Union and the co-author of The Freelancer's Bible: Everything You Need to Know to Have the Career of Your Dreams - On Your Terms (Workman Publishing Company, 2012), talk about how the law would work and what it will mean for employers and workers in the gig economy.
