Book Review: Jeremias Prassl's HUMANS AS A SERVICE: THE PROMISE & PERILS OF WORK IN THE GIG ECONOMY

In this new book, British law professor Jeremias Prassl analyzes the gig economy with a focus on the workers who actually labor in the gig workforce – and with an eye on the dignity and rights of such workers. Prassl persuasively argues that familiar Anglo-American precepts of employment law should apply to work in the gig economy.
