CDF Webinar: CA Supreme Court’s New Test for Determining Independent Contractors

Does your company have independent contractors?

Have you conducted an audit of them in the last week?

Before someone else does that audit for you – you should attend this complimentary, 30 minute webinar.

On April 30, 2018, the California Supreme Court issued a landmark decision in Dynamex Operations West, Inc. v. California Superior Court.  The California Supreme Court has articulated an entirely new standard for determining who is an employee and who is an independent contractor for wage and hour purposes.  This ruling makes it significantly more difficult for businesses to classify California workers as independent contractors – thus exposing the business to liability and fines from Labor Commissioner claims, EDD and FTB enforcement actions, and single plaintiff as well as class action lawsuits.

In this thirty (30) minute webinar, CDF's Orange County Managing Partner, Todd Wulffson, will discuss the key points and the new “ABC Test” for independent contractor status from Dynamex decision.  In addition, Mr. Wulffson will discuss how this new test compares to California Labor Code violation analysis (a different test), federal Department of Labor standards (a different test), and how to avoid liability as a California employer or an out of state business with California workers.

If you want to hire independent contractors in California, you don't want to miss this complimentary webinar.

PLEASE NOTE:  HRCI and SHRM credit is not available for this webinar due to the program being under the 1 hour requirement.  CA MCLE credit is available.
