Don’t Get Screwed: Rights and Responsibilities in the Contractor Economy

Sponsored by Money Muse

If you’re one of the 56.7 million American freelancers (also known as contractors, consultants, and gig-economy workers), you’ve probably encountered problems with taxes, employment rights, and getting paid (FIA 2018 Report). At this event, expert speakers will equip you with what you need to know about your legal rights, how to protect yourself, how to ensure payment from clients, and how to comply with your tax responsibilities. We’ll explore additional topics at your request and help you cut through the red tape.

Speakers include:

  • Jordan Wada, Attorney at AKW LAW
  • Celia Nightingale of the Washington State Department of Labor & Industries
  • Christopher J. Stockwell, Workers’ Rights Attorney and owner of Stockwell Law Firm
  • Lily Tran, Enrolled Agent (EA) and founder of TaxUSign
