2:00 pm - 3:00 pm   How the Gig Economy Continues to Affect Employment Law (1.0 Standard)

Updates in the law, including California AB 5 / Proposition 22 and US Department of Labor regulations are changing how workers are classified and who is an “employee.” This presentation will explore these recent updates and compare them to how other states and the IRS view the employment relationship. Case studies will look at enforcement and the law to explain consequences for classification or misclassification of workers as employees or independent contractors.
