Independent Contractors, California and You
The Supreme Court of the United States has formally declined to take up the appeal of the California Trucking Association challenging California’s AB5 independent contractor test. This means that AB5 is not pre-empted by federal law, and California can begin enforcing it against trucking companies. This webinar will explore the potential implications of the decision for fleets doing business in the State of California and how you may need to modify your operations to comply. The webinar will address the following questions:
Will this impact your business directly?
Do you need to change your business model substantially, or can you make operation tweaks?
What is the likelihood of this being adopted by other states?
The webinar will be presented by MTA member attorneys Doug Grawe, The Grawe Group, and Mike Glover, DeWitt LLP.
