AB5, in many ways, simplified the criteria for contractor status in California. However, AB5 also created a variety of exceptions to the ABC test. This webinar will cover the basics of the ABC test, and will explore the many exceptions to the ABC test that exist – exceptions which, if properly applied, provide companies with greater flexibility in retaining contractors. We will cover common contractor scenarios, identify a framework for assessing proper classification and provide risk mitigation strategies.

Cooley partner Wendy Brenner and senior associate Selin Akkan will speak at this event.
