PIHRA Coachella Valley

The War Against Independent Contractors

presented by Jonathan Judge


The ruling in Dynamex and AB5 affects nearly every industry sector throughout the California landscape. Dramatic changes take effect in 2020 that will dictate how employers classify workers-as employees or independent contractors.

Join partner Jonathan Judge with Atkinson, Andelson, Loya, Ruud & Romo for an enlightening discussion of the parameters of the ABC test, industry exemptions and when the Borello factors come back into play when classifying your workforce.
