Modern economic organization includes the devolution of big business. More and more, where businesses can outsource work and activities that were once central to the operation of the business, they will. With respect to agency, this trend towards outsourcing raises important questions.
First, employees acting within the scope of their employment are agents of the employer. But what about “independent contractors”? Are they also agents?
