ABSTRACT

Information and Guidance on Supporting On-Demand Workers Through the COVID-19 Crisis   [open pdf - 0B]

From the Document: "This memo provides governors and state officials with an overview of the key issues related to on-demand workers during the COVID-19 [coronavirus disease 2019] crisis. For the purposes of this memo, 'on-demand workers' is a broad term meant to include those workers who do not receive a W-2 [Wage and Tax Statement] tax form for some or all of their compensated work, like entrepreneurs and the self-employed. Research compiled by NGA [National Governors' Association] estimates that approximately three-in-ten Americans engage in some way with on-demand work, and around one-in-ten Americans engage in on-demand work as a primary source of income. On-demand workers are uniquely vulnerable. They are among those most likely to be exposed to the novel coronavirus, as well as be adversely impacted by the longer-term economic impacts of this crisis."
