Hello,

I'm interested to get information on the potential for integrating freelance workers into a multi-stakeholder co-operative, without undermining their self employed status. I wonder if other multistakeholder co-ops have experience of this issue? Specifically: If the client opts to create a new class of member to include freelancers in their meetings and systems, what do they need to be aware of in terms of not undermining the self-employed status of the individual freelancers? I'm aware there can be issues if they are elected as Directors.

I'd be grateful for your thoughts?

This was one of the methods used when Loomio was created. :D

Might be worth asking there. :D

Post deleted, diluted any energy to answer Kate's request. Could start a new post I guess but seems trivial when searching for information. ..Sorry Kate.
