New York City Council passes six bills today protecting gig economy workers. The legislation, all expected to be signed by Mayor de Blasio, provide sweeping protections for delivery drivers and hotel workers. The bills include new requirements for minimum pay, bathroom access, distance and route limits, recordkeeping, requirements to provide insulated food deliver bags, and limitations on third party service fees. These bills will bring substantial relief to food delivery and hotel workers in New York City.
