Classification of Independent Contractors: Not as Easy as ABC (Southern CA)

Classifying workers as independent contractors was never as simple as setting up a contract and deeming them “independent.”  Now, the standard for properly classifying independent contractors is even tougher with the California Supreme Court’s recent decision Dynamex Operations West, Inc. v. Superior Court.  This presentation will provide an in depth analysis of the new “ABC test” for classifying independent contractors and provide guidance for determining whether a worker may be misclassified.  We will also focus on the potential impact misclassifying a worker can have on retirement benefits, wages, unemployment insurance, workers compensation benefits, and health coverage.  Issues regarding joint employment and the use of workers from staffing agencies will also be discussed.  The presentation will conclude with tips for reducing risk and offer insight into what role independent contractors will play in public agencies in the future.
