Working Lunch: New push for portable benefits could be costly for employers

Plus, upcoming Supreme Court rulings that will affect the workforce

The conversation about portable benefits for independent contractors is heating up because of a state bill filed in Washington that would force employers to pay into a shared fund. The Align crew details how changes in the gig economy are shaping this type of policy, possibly for all employers.

Also, the U.S. Supreme Court will rule on several cases this session that impact operators and their employees. An attorney from the Jackson Lewis P.C. law firm provides his expert analysis on these matters.

And this week’s legislative scorecard includes the governor's decision in California over a wage shaming bill.
