November Webinar Prepares Employers for AB 5’s New ‘ABC’ Test

Oct 17 2019 - Independent Contractor - HRWatchdog

AB 5 independent contractors
Time to re-evaluate if your independent contractors should actually be employees.

AB 5, the sweeping new law recently 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 someone is an independent contractor,” cautions Erika Frank, webinar co-presenter and CalChamber executive vice president. “AB 5 imposes another test that excluded industries and workers must meet.”

Join employment law experts Erika Frank and Jennifer Barrera to learn what you need to know now:

  • 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. Gain insights on preventing costly misclassification mistakes that lead to fines and severe penalties.
