March 2020 Lunch and Learn
Please join us on March 26th for a lunch and learn featuring Steve Thompson from Aspen Risk Management Group. The topic will be Independent Contractor (AB5) Legislation: An Update.
In September 2019, the Governor of California signed AB 5 which became law in January 2020. According to the Legislative Council, the law puts the livelihood of nearly 2M Californians who choose to work as independent contractors at risk. AB 5 essentially eliminates the use of individual independent contractors (keyword is “individual”) where their offerings may be similar to the services provided by the company they are contracted with. The presentation will cover:
- Update and overview of the law
- Rules for evaluating independent contracting relationships
- The Dynamex ABC test
- Codification of ABC including nearly 40 haphazard exemptions
- Impact on companies and workers
