Changes to AB 5 Independent Contractor Laws… What’s New?

  • Date: October 21, 2020
  • Time: 9:00 AM – 10:00 AM
  • Cost: $25

On September 4, 2020, Governor Newsom signed AB 2257, which significantly revises and attempts to clarify California’s independent contractor laws.  AB 2257 creates new exceptions and modifies exceptions created by AB 5, making it challenging to determine whether independent contractors should be treated as employees of a hiring entity.  Join us for an overview of the new and expanded provisions in AB 2257, and recommendations for avoiding misclassification claims.
