PIHRA Burbank/Glendale

Employee or Independent Contractor?
Do You Pass the Test?

presented by Kathryn T. McGuigan


California Assembly Bill 5 (AB 5), signed into law on September 18, establishes difficult standards for classifying workers as independent contractors.

Many California companies have already been adopting modified practices following the California Supreme Court’s 2018 decision in Dynamex Operations West, Inc. v. Superior Court to ensure compliance and to minimize misclassification claims. Following the passage of AB 5, it is even more important to have a clear understanding of the current legal standards, and to apply appropriate compliance safeguards.

Join us on November 12, 2019 and learn more about how this new law will affect your company.

Our topics will include:

  • How AB 5 codifies Dynamex – and goes further
  • Application of AB 5, including the “ABC Test” and its exceptions
  • Additional enforcement and injunctive relief provisions
  • Practical considerations
