New York City's "Freelance Isn't Free Act"

Did you know that New York City’s Freelance Isn’t Free Act (FIFA) (Local Law 140 of 2016) went into effect on May 15, 2017?

It provides statutory protections to New York City’s freelance workers, with the goal of having these workers paid on time and in full.

If the freelance worker’s rights under FIFA are violated, the freelance worker may file a complaint with the Department of Consumer Affair’s Office of Labor Policy and Standards, pursuant to the agency’s complaint procedures. The freelance worker may also sue the hiring party in Court.
