Topics we will go over
- Our speaker will address the challenging question facing employers in California, “Do I have employees or independent contractors?”
- She will also talk about the Dynamex Decision, as it has become known, which applies a standard that presumes all workers are employees instead of contractors.
During this luncheon Poindexter will discuss the landmark 2018 California Supreme Court decision in the matter of Dynamex Operations West, Inc., which applies a standard that presumes all workers are employees instead of contractors. In April 2019, California adopted an employment-classification test, which places the burden on employers to demonstrate that every worker is not an employee.
