With more companies using on-demand workers (like independent contractors and temporary employees), today’s workforce is increasingly shared by and between companies. Due to this increase, the DOL announced it is stepping up efforts to track contingent workers -- those who don’t expect their jobs to last or consider their jobs temporary. By doing so, the DOL hopes to get a more accurate picture of today’s workforce by garnering insight and understanding about the sharing economy’s impact on employment. This will help legislators deal with some of the unique employment classification and tax issues that come with this new model. The survey, which will be provided as a part of the May 2017 population survey, was last used in 2005.
