This article is a continuation of our previous coverage on AB5 legislation in California. As this impacts our industry and process servers, we’ll continue to post updates on important legislation and ballot initiatives around the gig workforce in California.
Previously we reported on the situation in California around the AB5 legislation. This piece of California’s law has been mired in controversy from the start, as it created a new “ABC” test that must be satisfied before workers can be classified as independent contractors. As previously explained, AB5 aimed to expand the “ABC” test adopted by the California Supreme Court in the case, Dynamex Operations West, Inc. v. Superior Court in determining how workers in California can be classified regarding employment status.
