New California Employee Classification Test Signed into Law
On September 18, 2019 California Governor Gavin Newsom signed a legislation placing in law the test for determining when an employee is an independent contract.
The legislation, Assembly Bill 5 (AB5) , codifies a 2018 California Supreme Court decision and carves out exemptions for some professions, including doctors and real estate agents. The new test expands which workers must receive such benefits as minimum wage and paid sick leave.
Many believe AB5 will have a huge impact on gig jobs, as the legislation jeopardizes the flexibility and income opportunities the modern employment model provides for thousands of California workers.

The law is effective January 1, 2020.
