Webinar Description If your California business uses independent contractors, now’s the time to re-evaluate those workers to determine if they should become employees. AB 5, the sweeping new law signed by Governor Gavin Newsom, dramatically changes how employers classify workers as independent contractors or employees, starting January 1, 2020. The new employee classification test the California Supreme Court adopted last year in the Dynamex ruling affects nearly every sector of the California economy. While AB 5 exempts a number of industries and professions from the new “ABC” test, don’t fall into the trap of thinking this automatically means a worker is an independent contractor. AB 5 imposes another test that excluded industries and workers must meet. Join CalChamber’s Erika Frank and Jennifer Barrera to learn the pitfalls to avoid. You’ll gain helpful insights about: How AB 5 became law following 2018’s Dynamex decision The new, stricter ABC test for classifying workers The multifactor Borello test for businesses excluded from ABC Misclassification violations Future changes in the law Best practices In California, employers bear the burden of justifying each independent contractor classification.
