Goodbye Independent Contractors, Hello Employees: Welcome to AB-5

Legal & Regulatory Compliance

California recently enacted AB-5, a bill codifying the Dynamex court decision and making it much more difficult to classify a worker as an independent contractor as opposed to an employee. In this webinar, we will explore the practical implications of this new law and how it affects businesses throughout the state in terms of how they must identify and treat their workers. The dangers of misclassifying a worker as an independent contractor instead of an employee are now greater than ever, subjecting businesses to significant fines, penalties and back wages if a worker is improperly classified. 

Who Should Attend: Chief Risk Officer, Business Banking Officer, General Counsel

Learning Objectives

  • Learn the essential terms and scope of AB-5
  • Navigate the new law and develop rules and strategies for compliance
  • Improve hiring procedures to minimize the risk of misclassification
