Webinar Wednesday: AB 5 – A Game Changer in How We Classify Workers
With his signature on AB 5 on September 18, 2019, California Governor Gavin Newsom has completed the year-long overhaul of the state’s independent contractor test. What was once governed by a balancing test that provided breathing room for businesses to deploy contractors with relative ease has now been transformed into a bright-line standard that will challenge businesses across the state when it comes to compliance. Companies will soon face an increased risk of misclassification claims from workers unless they take immediate steps to get in line with the new law.
Join Adam Sloustcher and Miranda Watkins at 12:30 PM on October 23, 2019, as we discuss the intricacies of the new law and what you should be thinking about next. We will also be discussing two new recent developments in the law that will have an effect on the enforceability of arbitration agreements and the Private Attorney’s General Act (“PAGA”).
After registering, you will receive a confirmation e-mail containing information about joining the webinar.
