Memo-The Gig Economy

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:
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?
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.
Identify the steps Uber should take to limit its legal exposure for the conduct of its drivers.
