What’s the impact to you and your workplace?

Last year the California Supreme Court changed the landscape of California’s on-demand, gig economy when it issued its ABC Test in the landmark decision of Dynamex Operations West, Inc. v. Superior Court of Los Angeles.

Learn about:

  • The risks presented for your business on the misclassification of independent contractors if you or your vendor partnerships use a just-in-time or on-demand workforce.
  • The Dynamex decision – co-employment, subcontractor relationships, as well as other courts’ application of the ABC Test on independent contractor relationships.
  • The ruling has had big effects on the gig economy
  • The impact to industries in the cross-hairs of plaintiffs’ attorneys.
  • How the ABC Test is being used aggressively and expanded by agencies and plaintiffs and what businesses can do to protect themselves.
