The Classification of Workers as Independent Contractors in CA
Tuesday, November 12, 2019 11:00 AM - 12:00 PM (Pacific Standard Time)


Classifying workers as independent contractors in California has never been easy – but it became much more difficult in 2019 due to the passage of Assembly Bill 5, which followed the state Supreme Court decision in Dynamex Operations West, Inc. v. Superior Court of Los Angeles.  In this webinar, we will discuss the newly articulated ABC test used to classify workers for purpose of California wage and hour, unemployment and workers compensation laws. We will focus on functions commonly contracted in the nonprofit sector and analyze how these positions stand up under this simplified test.  We will also explore the classification tests applicable under other federal employment laws, and the difficulty of compliance with these differing standards.  Lastly, we will discuss how audits and litigation challenging worker misclassification arise, what penalties and liabilities exist, and steps to take to audit your existing contractor classifications.

Presenter: Ellen Aldridge, Employment Risk Manager
