We have written a decent amount on this blog about class-action litigation in the modern economy. These cases have keyed in on the issue of whether modern workers are independent contractors or employees. My research on this issue has led me to a wealth of information, and I have been able to aggregate a number of these cases into a single list, which you can Download Here. This list includes an impressive amount of class litigation against high-profile companies, including Uber, Lyft, Homejoy, Crowdflower, Instacart, Postmates, Caviar, Washio and others. I have included some basic background information about each case, as well as the district court docket citation and any media cites where available. I apologize for the "rough format" of this list, but thought others might find this resource useful as I have been unable to find any other discussion which sets forth an aggregation of the class-action cases brought in the gig economy. And, feel free to add any cases I might have missed in the comments below!
