Assignment 2: The Gig Economy

Assignment 2: The Gig Economy

Worth 220 points

Uber is  largely hailed as the advent of the gig economy, which is the idea that  people will not work for any one employer, but instead will work on  projects for any variety of companies desiring their services.  While  creating a new type of entrepreneurship for individuals, it raises a  host of new legal questions for companies around the law of agency.

An investment firm has asked you to evaluate Uber’s legal exposure for the conduct of its drivers.

Write an interoffice memo in which you:

  1. Summarize  the main principles of agency law and the term “scope of employment.”   How is this term applicable when it comes to Uber and its business and  the liability for its drivers? 
  2. Recently,  an Uber driver lost control and killed his passengers.  The driver was  drunk.  Should Uber be liable for the conduct of its driver in this  situation? Why or why not? Use the law of Agency to back up your  argument.  
  3. Identify the steps Uber should take to limit its legal exposure for the conduct of its drivers. 
  4. Use at least three (3) quality resources in this assignment, one being the textbook. Note: Wikipedia is not an acceptable reference and proprietary Websites do not qualify as academic resources. 

Your assignment must follow these formatting requirements:

  • Your  Memo should include a heading, summary statement, background and  recommendations. See the link for information on formatting.
