Gaia wants to work on a particular day she can just show up without notice.
Johnny and Ash pay Gaia a day to do odd jobs given to her by the shift
supervisor. One day Gaia slips over in some spilled cola that has been left on
the floor and breaks her wrist. Johnny tells her that she is not really an
employee. Is Johnny correct?

Gaia is now employed as a part-time worker in the Organicola
factory. At a family dinner she tells Ash that she hates coming to work now

Ash take next, and what are the possible legal consequences of failing to take
such steps?
