California AB 5 – How Significant Could One Bill Be?

In this podcast, Michael Lotito and Jim Paretti of Littler’s Workplace Policy Institute discuss pending California legislation – Assembly Bill 5 or “AB 5” – which is fast-tracking its way through the state legislature. The bill would codify portions of last year’s California Supreme Court decision in Dynamex v. The Superior Court of Los Angeles County, in which the court instituted the “ABC test” for determining whether a worker is an independent contractor under state law. The speakers explain how AB 5 – if enacted in its current form – could dramatically alter the legal landscape of California’s employment classification law.
