December 11, 2018 – Classification of Workers as Independent Contractors in California
11 a.m. PST (60 minutes)
Classifying workers as independent contractors in California has never been easy – but it became much more risky in 2018 due to state Supreme Court decision in Dynamex Operations West, Inc. v. Superior Court of Los Angeles In this webinar Ellen Aldridge, Employment Risk Manager, and Steve Werth, partner at the law firm Allen, Glaessner, Hazelwood & Werth will discuss the newly articulated ABC test used by courts to classify workers for purpose of wage and hour law coverage. We will focus on functions commonly contracted in the nonprofit sector and analyze how these positions stand up under this simplified test. We will also explore the classification tests applicable under other employment laws, and the difficulty of compliance with these differing standards. Lastly, we will discuss how audits and litigation challenging worker misclassification arise, what penalties and liabilities exist, and steps to take to audit your existing contractor classifications.
