BOCA RATON, Fla., July 11, 2019 /PRNewswire/ -- The National Council on Compensation Insurance (NCCI) released its Quarterly Economics Briefing for the second quarter of 2019. The report examines work arrangements that go beyond traditional wage and salary employment, paying particular attention to the kind of short-term work arrangements that comprise the so-called "gig economy."
"NCCI's Quarterly Economics Briefing investigates important topics in the US economy, helping stakeholders understand the related impact on the workers compensation system," said Bill Donnell, president and CEO of NCCI. "This quarter, we looked at the trends in nontraditional jobs and how they are changing the landscape of employment."
"We found the numbers of those engaging in these nontraditional jobs as their primary job is not increasing, but many people do nontraditional work as a secondary source of income," said Patrick Coate, co-author of the paper and an NCCI economist. "We also took a special look at electronically mediated work, which is small but growing, and receiving a lot of legislative and regulatory attention."
