Global Leaders Forum - 1st Annual Employment Forum
| Conferences and seminars - London
On 17 and 18 May 2022 the Global Leaders Forum organised under the chair of Siãn Keall, Partner Travers Smith London, their first annual employment forum in London.
Partner Pierre Elvinger co-moderated a panel under the header “The Gig Economy”. The term “gig” originated as slang for “work” in the music industry a hundred years ago, but became popularised as the “gig economy” about a decade ago after the financial crisis. As temporary and flexible jobs become more common legal clarity still lags and public/political opinion can be polarised. The panel discussed the following areas:
- Status of gig economy.
- Working time and pay for gig economy.
- One-sided flexibility.
