AB 5/Dynamex

The new independent contractor legislation, Assembly Bill 5, establishes a new set of criteria to be used in determining whether a worker may be classified as one employee or an independent contractor. The issues came to light because of a lawsuit between a courier company, Dynamex, and it’s drivers. Unfortunately, however, it has been codified into law in such a way that it has come to apply to workers from a much broader range of industries, and contains important stipulations for anesthesia practices in California.
