Who’s an employee? Who’s an independent contractor? What does the new “ABC test” say?

In a groundbreaking decision, the California Supreme Court adopted a new legal standard that will make it much more difficult for businesses to classify workers as independent contractors.

The monumental ruling and new “ABC test” affects nearly every industry – including the emerging gig economy.  In fact, all California businesses with independent contractors will need to conduct a thorough evaluation of such workers to determine whether they’re properly classified.

This critical webinar explores what your assessment should consist of, and what your company can do to reduce its exposure.

Learning Objectives

This information-packed program thoroughly examines the new “ABC test” which has seemingly replaced several decades worth of classification criteria with the following three-part test:

  • the worker is free from the control and direction of the hirer with regard to performing the work, both under the contract and in fact;
  • the worker performs work that is outside the usual course of the hiring entity’s business; and
  • the worker is customarily engaged in an independently established trade, occupation or business of the same nature as the work performed for the hiring entity.

Plus, leading Labor and Employment Law attorneys, Michael Studenka and Jason Morris with Newmeyer & Dillon, will guide you through, step-by-step:

  • An analysis of the Dynamex decision and its “ABC test”
  • Application of the “ABC test” to many common independent contractor situations
  • Risks associated with the misclassification of an independent contractor
  • Forecasting the future of the “ABC test” given post-Dynamex decisions
  • Traps and pitfalls:  how best to avoid misclassification claims in a post-Dynamex environment
