ICYMI: "SEC Proposes Temporary Rules to Facilitate Measured Participation by Certain 'Platform Workers' in Compensatory Offerings"

The Securities and Exchange Commission today voted to propose rules that, on a temporary basis and subject to percentage limits (no more than 15% of annual compensation), dollar limits (no more than $75,000 in three years) and other conditions, would permit an issuer [to] provide equity compensation to certain "platform workers" who provide services available through the issuer's technology-based platform or system.

The proposed rules reflect the significant evolution that has taken place in the composition and participation of the workforce since the Commission last substantively amended Rule 701 or Form S-8, particularly the development of the so-called "gig economy," which has resulted in new work relationships.
