The articles in this category are the inverse of those in “Beyond the Gig Economy” in that they take up some of the non-labor and employment regulatory concerns posed by gig work. They address taxation, zoning, property rights, food safety, and antitrust, among other topics, and they provide a fuller picture of the range of interests and concerns linked to the rise of gig work.
The list is divided into two categories. Articles are listed first, monographs appear second.
