FTX Crypto Fraud: One Year Later

12/4/2023
Zachary Pyers is joined by Zachary Durant, a professional liability attorney at Reminger Co., LPA, for an update on the fall of one of the world’s largest cryptocurrency exchanges - FTX. FTX collapsed in early November 2022 and shook the crypto market, which lost billions and fell below a $1 trillion valuation. In December 2022, the U.S. government brought civil and criminal charges against Sam Bankman-Fried and top executives for misappropriating over $8 billion in customer deposits. Bankman-Fried was convicted in November 2023 on criminal charges for which he was extradited from The Bahamas to the U.S., except for one charge dropped in July 2023. A second trial is scheduled for March 2024, covering charges filed post-extradition. Be sure to check out the video version of this interview on our YouTube page.

Washington State Expands Paid Family and Medical Leave to App-Based Drivers

7/21/2023
Gig economy workers are generally classified as independent contractors. However, this classification has been continuously challenged by the gig economy workers, and at times, by the App based companies through whom they find work. This has resulted in some state legislatures passing bills that require app-based companies to offer benefits, that are often reserved for employees of the app-based rideshare and delivery companies, to their independent contractors. The first such Bill was in California. Now, other states may be following suit. In March 2022, Washington state lawmakers passed House Bill (“HB”) 2076: The Expand Fairness Act. Effective January 1, 2023, the bill gave Washington app-based drivers the following rights: Listen to this week's episode for the details on this ruling.

The ABCs of Worker Classification

6/1/2023
Workers are traditionally classified as either employees or independent contractors. Gig economy workers are generally classified as independent contractors by the companies. However, we have recently seen both the Courts and state legislatures struggle with this dichotomy as it is applied to gig economy workers, who primarily work as rideshare or delivery drivers. On March 30, 2023, a federal district judge for the Northern District of California in the case Lawson v. Grubhub Holdings Inc., Case No. 3:15-cv-05128, ruled that a Grubhub delivery driver is an employee, not an independent contractor, for minimum wage and overtime claims, under the ABC test. Listen to this week's episode for the details on this ruling.

In November 2020, California voters passed Proposition 22: a ballot initiative to create a third type of worker classification. In February 2021, three California drivers and the Service Employees International Union filed a complaint against the State of California in the Alameda County Superior Court of California. In their complaint, the plaintiffs alleged that Proposition 22 was unconstitutional because it: Listen to today's podcast for the implications of this case on gig workers.
