Pay Equity and Justice for Freelancers

June 29 @ 5:30 pm - 7:30 pm EDT


What hourly pay provided to a freelancer amounts to minimum wage for an employee, a living wage or a reasonable professional wage? While it is hard to be precise it is possible to create reasonable estimates. We believe that funders, freelancers and the organizations that hire them have a role to play in creating equity and justice in freelancer pay. This workshop is for freelancers, organizations that hire them and funders who fund freelance pay. It will include discussions of the compensation research, explanations of the various costs freelancers are responsible for that employers cover for wage earners and calculations of the real value of freelance pay when freelance costs for taxes and other benefits are taken into account. It will also cover the rules for classifying a position as freelance or employee.

A calculator for translating freelance hourly wage to employee hourly wage equivalent will also be provided.

The program will be held on Zoom. You must register in advance.
After registering, you will receive a confirmation email containing information about joining the workshop.
