Interesting.

July 20, 2018, Oakland A former Image Reviewer who worked for Shutterstock, Inc. has filed a class and representative action suit against Shutterstock on behalf of herself and others, seeking to recover significant unpaid wages and penalties. The lawsuit, filed in the Superior Court for the County of Sonoma, claims Shutterstock systematically misclassifies its Image Reviewers, Footage Reviewers, Vector/Illustration Reviewers, and similar content Reviewers as independent contractors, in violation of California state law.

Didnt someone mention SS firing their reviewers and outsourcing to India? I wonder if theyre expecting to have to pay a settlement?

I had permission from the person who heard about this to tweet as there were no names mentioned (the reviewer wants to stay anonymous)

Maybe after two years of litigation they need to drum up a lot of money quickly? That might help explain the short notice about their new royalty structure.

I can't find any information except for the original file https://www.classaction.org/media/call-v-shutterstock-inc.pdf

She was likely paid to keep her mouth shut.
