AB5, or Assembly Bill No. 5, was created to overhaul the “gig economy” by discouraging businesses from classifying workers as independent contractors or “gig workers”, ensuring more companies are responsible for workers’ compensation, liability, benefits, unemployment, and more. Using a three-part test, employment status should be efficiently established, hopefully eliminating the misclassification of employees. There are always exceptions to the rules.
If you think you’ve been misclassified in the workplace, call the employment Law Offices of Garry M. Tetalman today at (805) 879-7518.
