Webinar: The Ongoing Saga of Gig Workers, AB5 and Proposition 22

Please share:

April 28 @ 12:00 pm 1:00 pm

1 Participatory MCLE Credits; 1 Legal Specialization in Workers’ Compensation Law

Is there anything more tortured than the simple definition of who is an employee in the State of California? Do you know how to figure it out? And what about those “gig” workers? Can they be considered employees? Recent reform, with AB5, with the ABC test, was met with major counter reform with Proposition 22. But things are complicated right now with Castellanos finding Proposition 22 unconstitutional. Need an update on how this is being handled by the WCAB? Join our April 28, 2023, webinar, as we update the workers’ compensation practitioner on the current status of applying AB5’s reforms, and the “gig” worker. The discussion will provide all the “nuts and bolts” to deal with independent contractor issues, and place the discussion of the “gig” worker in the larger context and history of working through the problems with the simple question: who is an employee?
