Wednesday, August 12 – Independent Contractor/Employee Classification of Workers in California: The Devil Is In the Details

Speaker: Denis Kenny, Experienced Labor and Employment Attorney


Many technical writers work as independent contractors rather than as employees, working on a freelance basis and handling taxes and benefits differently. With this in mind, how will recently passed legislation affect independent contractors in California?

Join us as attorney Denis Kenny explains:

  • The latest on AB-5, ABC Test, the “Integral” or “usual course” of your business piece, and EDD letter
  • Exempt Occupations and Borello
  • What about possible federal legislation?
  • Which other states are starting to follow suit
  • How workers are fighting against AB-5

When You Ask for Guidance

  • Questions you need to ask your accountant
  • Questions you need to ask your attorney
