California’s AB-5 Law — Comp + Coffee: Ep. 48

In 2018, the California Supreme Court ruled against Dynamex, a courier service that had been sued by two former employees. Legal action came after the company converted its entire staff from employees to independent contractors.

That decision launched AB-5, a new standard that will define who “independent contractors” are in the state of California.

On today’s episode, we’re joined by Margarita Wear from the Maier Law Group in San Rafael, California. She’ll help us break down this complicated ruling and look ahead to what this new law will mean for freelance workers nationally.
