CA Senate Labor Committee Passes Bill AB5: Dynamex


What does this mean for employers’ driver workforce?

The Bill

The California Senate Labor Committee passed Bill AB5 on July 10, 2019. This decision expands a groundbreaking California Supreme Court decision last year known as Dynamex, where the CA Supreme Court adopted a new test for classifying workers that presumes workers are employees. Businesses need to prove that a given worker is not an employee but actually an independent contractor (IC).   california_dynamex

The Impact

In California, employers must comply with IWC orders and are susceptible to claims for minimum wages, overtime, meal and rest breaks, and wage violations. Contractors do not have these obligations.
