Complimentary Breakfast Briefing | The Landmark Dynamex Decision and How it Affects Your Business
Our May/June Breakfast Briefing was initially scheduled to discuss how to address workplace harassment—but on April 30, the California Supreme Court published a landmark decision that will dramatically change the independent contractor/employee classification landscape. In keeping with our commitment to bring you the latest in employment law news, our monthly Breakfast Briefing will be dedicated to this critical decision.
Thanks to the business models of companies like Uber, TaskRabbit, and GrubHub, today’s job market has come to embrace new employment terms like “side hustle” and the “gig economy”. Subsequently, employers are finding themselves increasingly reliant upon different tests and standards to determine which of their workers can be qualified as employees, and which should be qualified as independent contractors. For nearly 30 years, the ruling of the Borello case was considered the operative test for determining the employee-independent contractor status in California. But, on April 30, the California Supreme Court issued a massive decision that replaces the Borello test for wage and hour claims with a new standard—the “ABC Test”—that creates a more difficult burden for businesses to overcome the presumption that a worker is an employee of the company.
Dynamex Operations West, Inc. v. Superior Court of Los Angeles will have a tremendous impact on California businesses—and it is critical that businesses understand the ruling in order to comply with the new standard it creates. In this Breakfast Briefing, AALRR attorneys will walk companies through the court case itself, and outline the new test that must be followed in order to avoid liability for misclassification and associated claims.
