Abstract As Gig economy is growing in India, The Gig workers should properly be recognized by the legislation for making the social security and welfare policies for their development. Ambiguity in Identifying and distinguishing Gig workers from other workers including Unorganized workers has become a great challenge to make legislation for the welfare of the Gig workers. The Gig workers who are not clearly defined in the code on social security 2020 have become a great challenge and difficult to keep them under employer-employer relationship which makes legislative body unable to make policies on subject matter relating to social security. The challenge can be removed by the judicial interpretation which becomes the basis for the legislative amendment in the future for the proper legal recognition of the Gig workers in the country. The recognition should be extended to the Sexual Harassment of women at workplace act (prevention, prohibition and redressal) act 2013. So, that the women Gig workers can also be protected against sexual harassment at workplace.
