Event Overview

About the Session:

Last year California Governor Newsom signed #AB5 into law, changing how companies determine which workers can be paid as independent contractors on a 1099 tax basis and who should be paid as employees on a W-2 basis. It’s potentially harmful to self-employed professionals and it’s confusing.

Even if you don’t live or work in California, other states like New Jersey and New York are proposing similar legislation and national companies will likely adopt these new legal requirements.

In this session, PICA’s General Counsel will discuss the implications of the new law and what you need to do to maintain your independence and 1099 tax status.
