Changes to employment law change the landscape for independent contractors in California
Assembly Bill 5 (AB 5) is an expansion of California law making it more difficult to qualify as independent contractors. The law requires a 3-criteria test to determine whether a freelancer is considered independent or an employee. Certain types of freelancer–client relationships will drastically change when the law takes effect in January 2020.What does this mean for my fellow creative freelancers and solopreneurs?
