21st Sept, 2019
Gig workers are now slowly but steadily becoming an indispensable part of the modern day companies. With the start-up ecosystem in India mushrooming exponentially, many present day companies wish to hire freelancers as compared to full-timers, resultantly strengthening the outlook of the gig economy. Many researches indicate that a significant percentage of employees in our country are willing to give up on the perks that normally come with a permanent job in exchange for a greater flexibility in terms of working and the freedom to choose multiple assignments based on their specific skill sets. Niche talents who have an in-depth understanding of new-age technologies and skills are going to be gigsters of this economy. In many developing economies, the idea of the gig economy has already made deep inroads. Gig economy somewhat eliminates the need for in-house skilling or upskilling of the regular labor force by an organization. Hence, the gig economy not only helps firms reduce internal financial pressures and bring in cost savings up to a great extent, but also provides a win-win situation for workers as well as the organizations. The objective of the seminar is to provide a common platform for academicians, corporate delegates and research scholars to discuss various barriers faced by self-employed workers. and to discuss some of the important steps that could be taken to ensure the right to freedom of association and the effective recognition of the right to collective bargaining among independent workers.
