I’m working on a business law question and need an explanation to help me learn.
There’s a legal requirement that some contracts must be in writing in order for the contract to be enforceable. Please develop a fact pattern where the contract meets one of these areas requiring a written contract. Also, share your rationale as to why the court requires writing in some circumstances and not in others.
With a whole gig economy, there are constant questions of whether a person is an independent contractor or employee. Please tell me why it matters. What would you prefer and why? Independent contractors or employees? Be sure to explain your position.
