Last week, California Governor Gavin Newsom signed into law AB 5, sweeping legislation that will dramatically reshape the contours of California's workforce and economy, and potentially reclassify two million independent contractors - roughly 10% of the state's workforce - as “employees” for purposes of state labor laws. AB 5 goes into effect on January 1.

To address the myriad potential legal and practical issues presented by this law, Littler's Workplace Policy Institute has created a Task Force of subject matter experts in independent contractor and wage and hour law. The Task Force has tracked AB 5 as it developed, and has issued a series of reports along the way. Now that the reality of AB 5 is just around the corner, California businesses need to take steps to plan for the years ahead in this brave new world.

Topics covered in the one-hour webinar will include:

  • An analysis of the key provisions of AB 5: The ABC test and those industries/occupations which received exceptions
  • A risk-assessment calculator for determining vulnerability to classification challenges
  • Practical suggestions for California employers to address the numerous challenges presented
  • Possible future challenges to AB 5
