With Assembly Bill 5 (AB5) gaining rapid momentum as it heads to the California senate, and the Dynamex ruling from 2018 now firmly taking root, the only thing we know for sure is that big changes are on the horizon for both companies and independent contractors with workers in California and beyond its borders. If these landmark shifts aren’t enough to make you take notice, add to the equation that these policies are expected to be enforced retroactively. Now you understand why this is the perfect storm.
Given California’s influence, other states are closely monitoring the AB5 vote. While more revisions are needed before going to the Senate, most signs point to AB5 becoming law. If it does, organizations in California and throughout the U.S. will be forced to build and execute on an enhanced 1099 compliance strategy, and do so quickly.
