Contingent workforce and flexible working continue to be a dominant issue in the current employment landscape. The laws in this area are still evolving, as governments adapt to modern workforce models, which companies are increasingly engaging with in order to help "futureproof" their businesses.

Recognizing this issue, our multipractice team of industry specialists have come together to provide resources that guide organizations through essential considerations and risks that come with these flexible working models and less traditional forms of worker engagement.

This multijurisdictional, interactive map and comparison tool highlights various areas of risk that companies should be considering when engaging contingent workers, covering employment, tax, employee benefits and pensions.
