IMPORTANT UPDATE: On September 4, the California Governor signed into law AB 2257 which completely re-writes AB 5. AB 2257 is effective immediately and should be used for information on who qualifies to be an independent contractor vs. employee. Learn what the new exemptions and requirements are to qualify for exemption. 
You will also learn why tax practitioners, unless also attorneys, should NOT be advising businesses on who qualifies as independent contractor and discuss some of the documentation businesses will need to retain to support that the worker qualifies as an independent contractor. Learn how a tax practitioner could also be liable for a client's incorrect determination that a worker is an independent contractor.

  • General understanding of classification of independent contractor vs. employee
  • Appreciating the importance of the employer seeking assistance while the CPA shall not give legal advice.
  • Difficulty of determining what type of documentation the employer needs to provide.

Major Subjects:
The speaker will cover how the newest law, Assembly Bill 2257 (a re-write of AB 5) has changed the California Labor Code and Unemployment Insurance Code to define who is an employee and who may be an independent contractor. You will learn how you, as tax practitioner, may be jointly liable if your client incorrectly determines that a worker is an independent contractor vs. an employee.
