CAADS WEBINAR: Independent Contractor

2:30 - 4PM PST | Topic - AB 5 and the “ABC Test”: Independent Contractor or Employee? How California’s New Classification Law Will Affect Your Center
Members $35 | Non-members $129 | Registration Form

In September 2019, California Governor Gavin Newsome signed an unprecedented new law, Assembly Bill 5, which now requires all employers to evaluate their relationships with independent contractors.

This legislation codifies and expands upon the California Supreme Court’s 2018 decision in Dynamex Operations West v. Supreme Court which was a major turning point for businesses in the state that classify some of their workers as “independent contractors.” The Supreme Court ruling in Dynamex states that a worker is presumed to be an employee under California’s wage orders unless the business proves three conditions are met (A, B, and C). As a result, businesses now have the burden of proving all three elements when hiring and/or employing an independent contractor.

Many CBAS centers in California rely on independent contractors for various reasons. However, because of AB 5 and the Dynamex decision the test for establishing independent contractor status has now become more stringent than ever. Accidental or intentional misclassification of employees as independent contractors can now result in some very serious consequences. According to California’s Labor Code, employers can face $25,000 for each “willful misclassification,” and/or jail time, and/or Federal and State tax penalties up to 40% of the underreported wages.

This webinar will provide centers with the timely information they need to ensure compliance with AB 5 and the Dynamex decision. After completing this training, you will:

  • Know why employee classifications matter to your business, and learn about the penalties for “contractor” misclassification under the new law (AB 5) and the Dynamex decision
  • Understand the “ABC” test, and the less strict “Borello” test and how to apply the test to your current “contractor” arrangements
  • Determine how to reclassify workers to employees when necessary and minimize the risk of future claims
