Good news, freelancers: On Monday, May 15, the Freelance Isn't Free Act becomes law in New York City.
We're psyched to have more protections for freelancers – and hope that with your help we can make nonpayment a thing of the past.
The law is just the first step towards ensuring that freelancers get fair treatment. As a group, we need to work together to share resources and information, identify bad actors, and organize against deadbeat clients who break the law.
Join the Freelance Action Network to be part of a growing movement (10,000 freelancers strong!) mobilized in support of better policies for the independent workforce.
In the meantime, mark May 15 on your calendar – we'll be holding a special event to celebrate!
