Rishi Puri authored an article in Oregon Business magazine’s September issue titled “Workers on Demand: A Tailored Approach to Worker Classification in the Gig Economy.” The article discusses the trend of hiring task-based labor forces and what every employer should consider prior to implementing such an approach.
