Publication date: 
Wednesday, March 11, 2020

This meeting focuses on Assembly Bill 5 (AB-5), which took effect on January 1, 2020. The new law makes it more difficult for employers to classify workers as independent contractors, instead of employees. It is already affecting freelancers and businesses of all types throughout California, including the nonprofit arts and culture sector, and individual artists. Californians for the Arts breaks down the law, new classification rules, compliance options, exemptions that apply to artists and nonprofit arts and culture organizations, and potential amendments.
