Whether we are married (an employee) or dating (an independent contractor) has always been a question that business owners should ask themselves, but on January 1, 2020, when Assembly Bill 5 become a law, California made the independent contractor relationship much harder to prove. While the law mostly targeted rideshare apps like Uber and Lyft, the rules have far reaching consequences that all employers and advisors should know. Alexis and Amanda will discuss the new law and the “ABC Test” to prove that a worker is an independent contractor (not an employee) as well as the rights of employees and the obligations of employers. It may be time for all business owners to take a second look at their business relationships because of this change in the law.
