Join the National Academy of Social Insurance for its 30th Annual Policy Research Conference on January 29-30, 2018 in Washington, DC.

The standard employment relationship has been eroding for decades, a process which has been accelerated by the emergence of apps that facilitate contingent work for multiple clients or employers. While the traditional structure of social insurance programs works well for a majority of the workforce, reforms are needed to broaden coverage for the growing ranks of workers in nonstandard employment relationships.

Panel Sessions Will Explore: 

  • What Do We Know about the Extent and Structure of Nonstandard  Work?
  • The Risks of Workplace Injury in Nonstandard Work and Policy Options
  • How Can Nonstandard Workers be Protected against the Economic Risks of Unemployment?
  • Economic Security for Nonstandard Workers in Retirement and Disability
  • Mitigating the Economic Risks of Caregiving: Access to Paid Leave for Nonstandard Workers, Job Quality for Care Workers
  • Where do we go from here? 

As a conference participant, you’ll be among leading experts and stakeholders, including policy analysts and researchers, political scientists, economists, actuaries, students, journalists, Congressional staff, business and industry leaders, labor union representatives, program administrators, advocates, grassroots organization leaders, and more.
