New Independent Contractor Law: What Salon Owners and Stylists Need to Know

  • Pony Studios 6012 College Ave Oakland United States (map)

AB5 passed in May 2019, and the implications are huge and far-reaching. There is a lot of confusion about what this all means for the salon industry. Join us on August 26th.

————————-————————-———-———-

Everyone is talking about the California Supreme Court’s new “ABC Test” for distinguishing employees from independent contractors in the case known as Dynamex. But knowing the new ABC Test is not enough. A few weeks after Dynamex, a Court of Appeal decided a different case that also dealt with the ABC Test when an employee is shared by multiple employers. And now the California Legislature is getting involved with proposed Assembly Bill 5 that would regulate how to determine independent contractors. Join us on August 26th for a very important presentation by labor and employment law attorney Gina Roccanova and our lobbyist at the State Capitol for the Professional Beauty Federation of California who will explain everything you need to know to understand the complex new world of who is and who is not an independent contractor, and what it means for salon owners and stylists.
