  • In the United States, there are two broad worker classifications: independent contractors and employees. “Gig work” and the “gig economy” can be interchangeably used with “independent workers” or the “independent workforce.” We are referring to people who are classified as independent contractors -— which broadly includes temporary help agency workers, on-call workers, contract workers, and freelancers. In conversations around this type of work, the term “gig worker” is often used when we refer to people who use online on-demand work platforms, like Uber, Lyft, Fieldnation, Taskrabbit etc. but could also be used to describe a babysitter or dog walker who advertised their services with flyers.
