This CLE webinar will cover California’s new independent contractor classification statute, Assembly Bill 5, and the court decisions enshrined by that statute. This newly-enacted law is a matter of great concern for all California businesses that use or are considering using independent contractors, and is a significant source of California employment litigation. We will discuss the broad implications of the statute and its application to various industries, as well as legal approaches that will help companies achieve their business goals while reducing legal risk and uncertainty.
