Freelance Isn’t Free: Know Your Rights as a Freelancer

Freelancers Hub
30 John Street
Brooklyn, NY 11201
Wednesday, January 29 | 6:30 pm

Did you know that it’s against the law for freelancers in New York City to not be paid within 30 days of rendered services?  The Freelance Isn’t Free Law went into effect on May 15, 2017 to provide basic protections for freelance work that include mandatory contracts, 30-day payment terms, payment agreement protections, anti-retaliation, legal assistance, and double damages. This law covers NYC freelancers who are earning 1099 income, owed over $800 of work in a 4-month period.

During this workshop, you will learn about the Freelance Isn’t Free Law protections in place to better support freelancers in NYC, directly from the experts at the NYC Department of Consumer Affairs, Merlyne Jean-Louis Business & Entertainment Lawyer at Jean-Louis Law, P.C., and Freelancers Union staff.
