How Is Technology Affecting Workers Comp?

How Is Technology Affecting Workers CompAt the click of a button, we can get food delivered to our homes, get cars to take us wherever we want and get instant access to almost about everything.  On-demand technology continues to grow in many industries. However, it’s become a pressing phenomenon in the workplace industry. To stay protected make sure you’re covered with our New Jersey Workers’ Comp policy.

According to an article in Insurance Journal, Worker’s’ Comp industries must keep up with the fast-paced, on-demand economy. At the benefit of underemployed or unemployed, flexible individuals, the on-demand technology can be of use for those looking for a job. These apps, or services, are constantly looking to hire because of the increasing demand. 

With the use of smartphones constantly increasing, these on-demand services are growing phenomenally. Uber, Lyft, Postmates, Washio, Taskrabbit – these are just a few of the services provided by the touch of a finger. However, the issue lies in the economic rights of temporary workers in the on-demand world.

If treated like an independent contractor, individuals lose out on job benefits, economic security and all types of insurance.  The question lies in the gap that insurance companies must fill for this type of technology.
