Webinar Information

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.”

The Independent Contractors—Dynamex, AB 5 and Beyond webinar will cover:

  • 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; and
  • 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.
